Health inspectors find unsafe food surfaces at Seabrook Valero
Harris County health inspectors observed a variety of violations related to unsafe food surface rules at the Valero convenience store on Oct. 7 at 3324 Nasa Road in Seabrook.
The department considers this type of violation as one that could lead to the spread of foodborne illnesses.
According to Harris County, unsafe food surface problems include cracked/chipped plates, cups, knives; a cutting board that cannot be easily cleaned; slime on soda nozzles, soda gun and holster, ice machine, and yogurt machines; a cracked or damaged interior surface of a microwave oven; and can openers, knives, utensils that are not clean, broken or in poor condition.
The restaurant did not have enough violations to warrant further action or a return visit from the department, however similar problems were cited when the store was inspected in January.
The store received a score of 6 on a 0-100 scale with 0 being the best number and 100 marking the worst score possible. An establishment must have a score of 20 or higher to be considered a concern and require a follow-up inspection.
