The Clermont County General Health District conducted a food inspection at the following Pierce Township area business during the week of Jan. 12-18:
Dickey's Barbecue, 1227 state Route 125, Amelia, received a standard inspection Jan. 13. The business received three critical violations and five non-critical violations. According to the report, the critical violations were "Corrected during inspection: food employee(s) did not wash hands in situations that specifically require them to do so. To prevent contamination, food employees shall clean their hands and exposed portions of their arms after switching between working with raw food and with ready to eat food, before donning gloves for working with food, and after other activities that contaminate the hands. Discussed with operator: food on display was not properly protected from contamination by consumers. Lemons and pickles were near the soda dispenser. Except for nuts in the shell or whole raw fruits and vegetables that are intended for hulling peeling or washing, food on display shall be protected from contamination as required by this rule. Corrected during inspection: several whole cooked cuts of pork were not marked. Refrigerated ready-to-eat TCS food held refrigerated for more than 24 hours shall be clearly marked at the time of preparation or the time the original container is opened to indicate the date or day to be consumed, sold or discarded as required in this rule."
A person or entity that wishes to serve food to the public is required by law to first obtain a license from the Clermont County General Health District. These licenses are issued following a review of facility plans and menu and assuring, by inspection, compliance with food safety standards and practices. Routine inspections during subsequent operation of the food service assess the operator's success in assuring that the facility and the equipment are maintained and that routine practices are conducted in a safe and sanitary manner.
