Fly traps above food table, broken bathroom door earn snack shop poor health score

Watch 'Behind The Kitchen Door' on KSAT 12 News

SAN ANTONIO – An East Side treat shop earned a marginal to poor score on its latest health inspection due to a variety of issues, including fly traps above a food preparation table and a broken restroom door, records show.

Amigos Snacks and More received a 71 on its latest health inspection -- three points away from failing.

An inspector wrote that in addition to the faulty restroom and fly trap placement, an employee did not have a hairnet on while preparing food and a handwashing sink was used to dump out wash towel water and ring out wash towels.

You can read the full report by searching the Metro Health website.

The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District's scoring of food establishments is based on a 100-point demerit system.

The inspection reports, which establishments are required to post in public view, feature a number score at the top and bottom of the front page. A separate placard with the number score and a letter grade (example: 100/A) is also available upon request from the food establishment. Posting the placard is voluntary.
