Rappahannock Area Health District (RAHD) officials recently inspected food preparation and storage in Fredericksburg. Full reports can be accessed on the health department's website.
A "critical violation" is one that "poses a direct or immediate threat to the safety of the food being served."
"In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that a complex, full-service food operation can routinely avoid any violations," according to Virginia Department of Health's website.
The site continues: "Keep in mind that any inspection report is a 'snapshot' of the day and time of the inspection. On any given day, a restaurant could have fewer or more violations than noted in the report. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term cleanliness of an establishment."Name Facility Location Last Inspection No. of Critical Violations Costco Wholesale 3102 Plank Road 7-Feb-2013 0 McDonald's (Lee's Hill) 5228 Jefferson Davis Highway 7-Feb-2013 3 Starbucks Coffee 137 Spotsylvania Towne Center #Suite #450 7-Feb-2013 0 Teavana Spotsylvania Mall #Space # 570 7-Feb-2013 0 Minnieland Private Day School 5707 Salem Run Blvd 5-Feb-2013 1 Cancun Mexican Margarita Bar & Grill Spotsylvania Mall #Suite #625 5-Feb-2013 2 China King 10211 Southpoint Parkway 5-Feb-2013 5 Residence Inn 60 Towne Centre Blvd. 5-Feb-2013 3 Subway (BJ's) 3985 Plank Road 5-Feb-2013 1 Firebirds Wood Fired Grill 1 Towne Centre Blvd #5100 4-Feb-2013 4 Kobe Japanese Steakhouse and Cafe, Inc. 10119 Southpoint Parkway 4-Feb-2013 5 Joe's Crab Shack 2805 Plank Road 4-Feb-2013 0 Spotsylvania Courthouse Cafe 8955 Courthouse Road 4-Feb-2013 0 Carrabba's 1951 Carl D.
