RESTAURANT REPORT CARD: Cafe a la C’Art fails health inspection

KOLD Restaurant Report Card, Friday, March 1

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - Each month, the Pima County Health Department inspects hundreds of restaurants and fast food places.

KOLD News 13′s Vicki Karr looks over the reports each week for our Restaurant Report Card, a segment we hope keeps you safe when you grab a bite to eat.

Inspectors said Cafe a la C’Art at 150 N. Main Ave has had problems with keeping food at the right temperature.

Certain foods must be kept below 41 degrees, as required by FDA code.

The health department said it was the third time the cafe has been flagged for the violation.

During a routine inspection Feb. 8, it was put on probation.

The owner was given 10 days before inspectors stopped by again Wednesday, Feb. 20.

The inspector said some food was still not being cooled properly so they were given a fail rating. The cafe is up for another inspector next week.

Businesses can fail inspection for many reasons other than unsafe food.
