Coral Springs KFC closed after suspected health breaches – But it’s only temporary

September 15, 2023 by No Comments

The KFC establishment situated at 5850 Wiles Road recently faced a closure order and suspension of its services following an inspection prompted by a customer complaint. This evaluation, carried out by officials from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation on September 7, resulted in the discovery of four violations.

One of the most significant infractions involved the presence of live, small flying insects in various sections of the restaurant, including the kitchen, food preparation area, food storage area, and bar area. Inspectors observed live flying insects in several parts of the establishment, notably on the wall in the dry storage area, at the boundary between the men’s and women’s restrooms in the dining area, within the dining area itself, and in close proximity to the soda beverage machine. Additionally, a live roach was found crawling on the wall near the main entrance and exit door, indicating the possibility of an active roach infestation.

Inspectors also identified a critical food safety violation related to inadequate time and temperature control for food safety procedures. Specifically, potato hash was being kept at temperatures ranging from 106°F to 130°F, falling well below the required minimum of 135 degrees Fahrenheit for safe food storage.

In response to these violations, the KFC location temporarily ceased operations to address and correct the issues. Subsequent inspections will be conducted to ensure that the restaurant has effectively remedied these concerns and is in compliance with health regulations.
