Condensation dripping on meat leads to failing health score at NE Side meat market


SAN ANTONIO – A North East side meat market failed a city health inspection last month after condensation was seen dripping onto meat stored in a meat case.

Culebra Meat Market, located in the 14000 block of Nacogdoches, was also cited for having black residue in its bulk salt container and for improperly labeling foods.

Health records show this the market’s second failed inspection since the fall of 2017.

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.
