The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation recently ordered the closure of a Tamarac restaurant due to multiple serious health and safety violations.
On January 12, the Department of Business and Professional regulation performed a routine inspection of Kings Point Diner at 7134 North Nob Hill Road. Upon inspection, the diner was temporarily closed due to violating Florida’s sanitation and safety laws.
The inspection report details findings of numerous high-priority violations, such as raw animal foods not properly separated during preparation and live roaches present in the establishment.
Intermediate and basic violations were also noted, including a lack of written procedures for employees to follow in response to vomiting or diarrhea events, dead roaches on the premises, duct tape used to repair nonfood-contact surfaces, employee personal items stored in food preparation areas, and objectionable odors in the bathroom.
In total, 12 food and safety code violations were observed and included in the report. Kings Point Diner was required to correct the violations before it was permitted to reopen. According to records, it did just that, reopening the next day.
The report also refers to broken procedures and how those divisions’ procedures are designed to compel compliance with all violations through follow-up visits, administration action, or closure when necessary.
