Officials at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene gave the Sexy Back hitmaker’s Southern Hospitality venue a routine examination in July, and according to the department’s records, the place received four violations.
In the documents obtained by GossipCop.com, two of those violations were critical, with the first showing “evidence of mice or live mice present in facility’s food and/or non-food area”, adding the venue has “conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.” The other citation suggests an area of the kitchen which comes in contact with food was “not properly washed, rinsed and sanitised after each use, and following any activity when contamination may have occurred.” The final grade for Southern Hospitality is still pending, and the restaurant remains open.
Recall those days now while you enjoy this newly unearthed nugget of information about Justin’s former restaurant Destino.
Destino, despite being generally well-liked and frequented by famous clientele, closed in 2013 due to what was at the time called a “flood problem.” But thanks to a new lawsuit filed by the restaurant’s partners against their insurance company, it’s now clear that the “flood” in question was actually a torrent of human shit, or as Jezebel’s Kitchenetteblog brilliantly puts it, “a localized doody hurricane.” Bon appetit!
Tofu should be made fun of, as Justin Timberlake did on Saturday (Night Live).
But not when tofu has the potential to make people barf.
The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has revoked the food processing license of Chu Minh Corp., which produces tofu and other soy products, after several inspections found on-going sanitation problems with the Seattle business.
In addition to revoking the company’s license to process food, WSDA also assessed a civil penalty of $17,800 against the company and required all product at the facility to be destroyed.
Notices about the license revocation have been sent to all retail outlets and restaurants that have purchased or carry Chu Minh products. As a result of these actions, the company cannot process any food at this location. Chu Minh has 10 days to appeal and request agency reconsideration of the order, but it cannot operate as a food processing operation during that appeal period.
