Deerfield-News. com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-The most read post of 2023 from “Dirty In Deerfield” restaurant inspections was Cracker Barrel. Reprinted from 6-20-23-Below

Second up was more recently J’s Kitchen on Federal Highway that story is below as well.

Keep your restaurant’s kitchen clean we would rather post about the restaurants with perfect inspections than the “Dirty In Deerfield” inspections that are sometimes just disgusting and gross as a restaurant that would be in the condition described by inspectors in the reports. Remember that the inspection is a snap shot in time and random what is going on in between inspections with bad restaurateurs is what worries me.

Deerfield-News. com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-A recent State of Florida  DBPR food inspection of the Cracker Barrel caused a temporary closure after finding roaches at the restaurant. Below is the report from the DBPR.

Violations:
A summary of the violations found during the inspection are listed below. The department cites violations of Florida’s sanitation and safety laws, which are based on the standards of U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Food Code. High Priority violations are those which could contribute directly to a foodborne illness or injury and include items such as cooking, reheating, cooling and hand-washing. Intermediate violations are those which, if not addressed, could lead to risk factors that contribute to foodborne illness or injury. These violations include personnel training, documentation or record keeping and labeling. Basic violations are those which are considered best practices to implement. While most establishments correct all violations in a timely manner (often during the inspection), the division’s procedures are designed to compel compliance with all violations through follow-up visits, administration action or closure when necessary.
