Food safety score looks good for local Burger King, though one problem seen
A Burger King restaurant in the Cy-Fair area recently received a passing grade from Harris County food safety inspectors, though one problem was observed.
The 22536 SH 249 location of the "Home of the Whopper" received its regular inspection on March 14. In its official report, county staff gave the fast-food restaurant 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.
According to the report, the demerits were given for an "approved systems" violation, which could indicate improper time marking of food held over 24 hours or similar lapses in procedure. This violation is not on the county list of problems commonly associated with food-borne illness by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The problem was corrected while inspectors were on site.
This is more or less a typical score for this Burger King location. It received three demerits in November 2010, four in July 2010 and four in April 2010. Records also indicate that a food-borne illness investigation was ordered after the April visit.
