The Kansas Department of Agriculture conducted six restaurant inspections during the month of September. Of those inspections, only a few minor violations were noted. 


Routine inspections were conducted at Plastics Extrusion Machinery (PEM), Washington Elementary School, Crew Nutrition and Wald Family Foods. No violations were found during those inspections. 


According to records from the Kansas Department of Agriculture, a complaint was received regarding The Fieldhouse Sports Grill and Taps and an inspection was done at the restaurant on Sept. 27. The inspection resulted in four minor violations. Those violations include house-made marinara sauce being out of date, a dirty potato slicer, lack of paper towels near a handwashing sink and an unlabeled cleaning bottle. Education was provided and all violations were corrected while the inspector was onsite. 


Central Christian College cafeteria had a routine inspection completed on Sept. 15 and one violation was found. A pan of raw beef was placed on a shelf in the walk-in cooler above a pan of cooled peas for the salad bar. Staff was asked to move the beef to the bottom of the cooler, which they did, correcting the violation.
