Dried blood, dead flies and a mold buildup were among many violations found by state health inspectors at Wichita restaurants during February service inspections.
For instance, there was a heavy accumulation of dried blood and raw meat found on a walk-in cooler's plastic curtains at La Tienda Del Ahorro, 3108 E. 31st St. A dead winged insect was found in liquor at Abuelos, 452 S. Ridge. Two bags of molded apples were found at Manna Wok Carry-Out, 4815 E. Harry.
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.
