One restaurant was temporarily shut down after failing a second health inspection in July. Two other places failed as well but remained open.
Peking Garden, 206 N. Randolph St., Champaign, was closed on July 2 with an adjusted score of 18 percent after a failing routine inspection in June.
On July 2, inspectors cited Peking Garden for 16 repeat violations and three critical violations, including cooked rice that was improperly cooling, an employee washing hands in the food preparation sink and spray bottles that were not labeled with their contents.
Restaurants fail if they score 35 or below. If they score below zero they are automatically closed down. Restaurants with a failing score upon reinspection are also closed down.
Peking Garden was allowed to reopen on July 3 after scoring 81 percent on its third inspection.
Empire Chinese Restaurant, 410 E. Green St., Champaign, scored a 17 percent on its July 29 inspection for 15 repeat violations and six critical violations, including raw chicken and beef out of temperature.
Cameron’s Catering Inc., 116 N. First St., Champaign, scored a 29 percent on its July 3 inspection for five repeat violations and five critical violations, including an open employee beverage stored on shelving with places and an inadequate supply of hot and cold water to a handsink.
Both are scheduled to be reinspected within 30 days.
For the past five years, public health officials have worked on a plan to make health inspection results more public. In 2011, CU-CitizenAccess began posting failed health inspection reports.
As a service, we continue to post the full reports of failed health inspections as part of our searchable, interactive map.
