Chinese restaurant passes food safety inspection despite persistent labeling problem
Harris County inspectors recently gave a passing score to a Chinese restaurant in the Cy-Fair area, though one violation was corrected on site.
County staff paid its regular visit to China Inn Fine Chinese Cuisine, 8100 Highway 6 N., on Feb. 11. The restaurant was given three demerits out of a possible 100. An establishment must earn 20 demerits to be considered "of concern" and in need of a follow-up visit.
The demerits were awarded for a problem with proper food labeling and storage. The violation was not among those that the county website lists as commonly associated with food-borne illness by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
China Inn received three demerits for the same violation in a July 2010. It was also observed in an April 2010 inspection in which the restaurant received 10 demerits overall.
