China Olive Restaurant found itself back in the crosshairs of the Southern Nevada Health District after a re-inspection on Feb. 8. SNHD inspectors shut the restaurant down with 14 demerits that followed a Nov. 30 inspection found 8 demerits, another routine inspection on Dec. 19 found 19 demerits and a re-inspection on Jan. 16 found 25 demerits.
During the Feb. 8 re-inspection, SNHD found employees weren't washing their hands properly, food was unprotected from chemical contamination and the restaurant was not using effective pest control measures.
The restaurant has been shut down by SNHD four other times since 2007 with 64 demerits in 2007, 61 demerits in 2008 and a whopping 70 demerits last May. The restaurant at 151 N. Nellis Blvd. earned the most demerits for 2012 during that routine inspection on May 2. A pest infestation called for immediate closure, but the restaurant racked up numerous violations such as spoiled food, no hand washing and much, much more.
The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
