By Dillon Collier - Investigative Reporter

SAN ANTONIO - A Jack in the Box restaurant on the city's West Side was ordered to go through a follow-up inspection last month after it was cited for having a black and pinkish buildup in its ice machine and dead insects in its storage area, according to a Metropolitan Health District inspection report.

The fast-food restaurant at 5850 Culebra Road received a 75 during the Feb. 12 inspection.

The establishment was also dinged for having a cracked lid on its milkshake machine.

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.
