The Southern Nevada Health District shut down two restaurants in Las Vegas after routine inspections.
First up, Marie Callender's Restaurants & Bakery, the chain restaurant at 600 E. Sahara Ave. An SNHD inspection on July 14 found an imminent health hazard, sewage or liquid waste disposed improperly, that called for the immediate shut down of the restaurant.
The restaurant was shut down by the health department on July 11, 2014, after a routine inspection. Most other inspections dating back to 1990 resulted in A grades.
Cafe Noodle & Chinese BBQ at 4355 Spring Mountain Road was shut down by the Southern Nevada after a routine inspection on July 14.
Health inspectors issued 53 demerits. Inspectors found spoiled food, food unprotected from potential contamination, staff not properly washing their hands, an inadequate number of hand-washing facilities, ineffective pest control measures and so much more.
This is the fourth time the restaurant was shut down by SNHD since 2014. The health district conducts unannounced inspections at least once a year. Inspections are posted online about five days after the inspection. 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.
