Cy-Fair area Japanese restaurant passes Harris County public health inspection
A Cy-Fair area Japanese restaurant passed its routine Harris County public health inspection in March, though some problems were noted.
Shogun Japanese Grill, located at 114 Vintage Park Blvd., Suite A, was inspected on March 15. Inspectors gave the restaurant nine 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 their report, the inspectors awarded the demerits because of an "approved systems" violation, which could mean that certain foods were not date-marked and were held for over 24 hours, or other similar errors. The inspectors also noted a "cold hold" violation, which means that food that is time-sensitive is held over a certain temperature for more than four hours. The latter violation is among those often associated with food-borne illness outbreaks according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The score of nine demerits is a slight decline for Shogun, which received seven demerits in October 2010; in July, four; and in April, seven.
