Orange slime, black mold and a dead insect were among many violations found by state health inspectors at Wichita restaurants and hotels during January service inspections.
For instance, there was orange slime and soil found in the ice machine at Genesis Health Club, 505 W. Maple. At least one dead insect was found inside a bottle of Tuaca at Sabor Latin Bar and Grill, 309 N. Mead. Black mold was found at Regency Inn, 6125 W. Kellogg.
Inspections can take place at any time, and follow-up inspections take place if violations aren’t corrected on site.
Inspections can also occur as a result of a complaint, and all establishments are inspected when they open as part of the licensing process.
