Two local restaurants failed their most recent inspections by the Grayson County Health Department.


The Grayson County Health Department rates restaurants and other establishments that serve food based on their adherence to codes set by the Texas Department of Health. Restaurants are given an “A,” “B,” “C” or “F” score. An “A” means sanitarians reported no or only a few minor violations. Those with a “B” were found to have several minor violations, but nothing major. Restaurants with a “C” might have a major violation or repeat offenses, but in the inspectors’ opinions, nothing bad enough to warrant an “F.” An “A” means sanitarians reported 10 or fewer demerits. Those with a “B” received 11-20 demerits. Restaurants with a “C” had 21-30 demerits and restaurants with “F” ratings received more than 30 demerits.


Tokyo Hibachi & Sushi, at 2916 Highway 75 in Sherman, and Genti’s Pizza, at 81750 Highway 289 in Pottsboro, both received failing “F” grades in the most recent rounds of inspections.


At Tokyo Hibachi & Sushi, the inspector noted a pan of raw chicken stored directly adjacent to a pan of raw shrimp in the walk-in cooler.


“Food of different cooking temperatures must be separated to prevent cross contamination,” the report stated.


It also noted that this was a repeat violation for the establishment. In addition, the report showed that the inspector found an improperly labeled spray bottle in the ware washing area and toxic chemicals that were stored above food products in the dry storage area and near the utensils in the ware washing area.


The inspector also found leaking pipes underneath the dishwasher. Additionally, the report noted that an employee did not know how to properly test the sanitizing levels in the dishwasher. The report said the sushi rice was being stored at room temperature.


“Vinegar is added to this rice to lower the pH and render it non-time, temperature control for safety food,” the report said. “This is considered a special process and for proper use of the procedure, a pH meter and distilled water must be available at this establishment to ensure the pH of the rice is below 4.6. Neither a pH meter nor distilled water was available during this inspection.”


The health department inspection report for Genti’s Pizza showed there was a cooler being used to hold pizza toppings that was not working. The report also listed a number of food products that were being stored directly on the floor. The report also said food products were not labeled properly and that potentially hazardous food products were not properly sealed when being stored. Some potentially hazardous foods were also stored without being properly date marked.
