DOH Chronicles covers restaurant inspections by the Southern Nevada Health District that earn 39 or more demerits. More than 40 demerits or an imminent health hazard calls for the immediate closure of a restaurant.
The Southern Nevada Health District almost Bo Bo China at 8465 W. Sahara Ave. after a routine inspection on Friday, Aug. 10, revealed 39 demerits, two away from an automatic closing.
Health inspectors discovered staff improperly handling food with bare hands, potentially hazardous foods improperly cooled and held at the wrong temperature, food unprotected from potential contamination, an inadequate number of hand washing facilities, inaccurate thermometers, unposted grade signs, and more.
The restaurant last earned a C grade in 2008. Most grades ranged from A’s to B’s since 2006.
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.
