COLLEEN: THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT WARNS A WEST SIDE RESTAURANT TO CLEAN UP ITS ACT. MIKE: MCDONALD’S FIRES TWO WORKERS AFTER STICKING CANDY INSIDE A SANDWICH. AND WE’RE HONORING A POPULAR MEXICAN RESTAURANT WITH OUR COVETED NBC 4 UP TO CODE AWARD. COLLEEN: TOM SUSSI DISHES OUT ALL THE DETAILS IN TONIGHT’S UP TO CODE REPORT. TOM… TOM: I TOLD YOU ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT IN MARCH. LA PLAZA LA-PODIA. WELL – TONIGHT THE FRANKLIN COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT ISSUED THEM THIS WARNING LETTER. TOM: SO FAR THIS YEAR – LA PLAZA TA-PODIA HAS HAD SIX INSPECTIONS FOR A TOTAL OF 61 VIOLATIONS…18 OF THEM CRITICAL. “LAST WEEK INSPECTORS UNCOVERED 32 VIOLATIONS…. 10 OF THEM CRITICAL.” LIKE AN ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF UNCOVERED AND UNWRAPPED FOOD. COOLING UNITS NOT HOLDING PROPER TEMPERATURE. ICE MACHINE AND KITCHEN EQUIPMENT IN NEED OF CLEANING. AND MOUSE DROPPINGS. “TOM SUSSI…NBC 4. IS THERE ANYONE I CAN TALK WITH ABOUT THIS WARNING LETTER FROM THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT? LET ME CALL MY BOSS.” A FEW HOURS LATER I RECEIVED THIS EMAIL FROM ONE OF THE MANAGERS. HE WROTE: “I FEEL SORRY FOR ALL OF THE ISSUES BUT I WILL ASSURE YOU THAT WE WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL OF THEM.” IF NOT – THE FRANKLIN COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT WILL HAVE AN ADMINSTRATIVE HEARING.” A PIECE OF CANDY…INSIDE A MCCHICKEN. IT’S GOTTEN A LOT OF PLAY ON SOCIAL MEDIA. TURNS OUT – IT HAPPENED. AND THE TWO YOUNG WORKERS AT A VINTON COUNTY MCDONALD’S WERE IMMEDIATELY FIRED. NOW IT’S TIME TO PRESENT THE NBC 4 UP TO CODE AWARD. THIS WEEK’S RECIPIENT? CHILE VERDE AT THE 1500 BLOCK OF GEMNI PLACE. “CONGRATULATIONS…TH ANK YOU. I’M EXCITED.” GENERAL MANAGER AMY MARECO TELLS ME THE COMPANY IS A STICKLER WHEN IT COMES TO CLEANLINESS AND FOOD SAFETY. AS FOR THE FOOD – I’LL LET AMY EXPLAIN. “I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE IT’S SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT THAN A TRADITIONAL MEXICAN RESTAURANT BUT WE HAVE LOTS OF SIMILARITIES. OUR MAIN INGREDIENT IS THE GREEN CHILI WE GET FROM MEXICO.” TOM: CHILE VAR-DAY – BY THE WAY – HAS ANOTHER LOCATION OFF SAWMILL. I’VE POSTED THOSE INSPECTIONS ON OUR WEB PAGE – NBC 4 I.COM.

  1. That place was sick as fuck. Don't forget about the cockroaches in the bakery and dead bees inside the orange juice machine.
