Rappahannock Area Health District (RAHD) officials recently inspected food preparation and storage in Spotsylvania County (none in Fredericksburg this week). 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 Ledo Pizza & Pasta 9849 Jefferson Davis Highway 24-Jan-2013 2 Grandma's Getaway 4010 Lafayette Blvd., #6 23-Jan-2013 1 McDonald's #6432 3102-A Plank Road 23-Jan-2013 5 Ihop #4411 2831 Plank Road 23-Jan-2013 2 Wendy's (Fredericksburg) 2301 Plank Road 17-Jan-2013 0 Don Alberto Charcoal Chicken II, Inc. 10621 Courthouse Road 17-Jan-2013 5 Mi Pueblo Mexican Restaurant 10647 Courthouse Road 17-Jan-2013 0 Sonic Drive-In 10045 Jefferson Davis Highway 17-Jan-2013 2 Sweet Sno #2 (VA865-159) 7533 Belmont Road 17-Jan-2013 0 Chili's 3104 Plank Road 16-Jan-2013 2 Riverview Elementary School 7001 North Roxbury Mill Road 16-Jan-2013 0 Thornburg Middle School 6929 North Roxbury Mill Road 16-Jan-2013 0 Burger King (Leavells) 10461 Hilltop Plaza Way 15-Jan-2013 1 Chick-fil-A 8020 Spotsylvania Mall ##0297 15-Jan-2013 3 Je T'aime Catering 5321 Jefferson Davis Highway 15-Jan-2013 0 Ledo Pizza Cafe 10000 Germanna Pt.
