The Butler County General Health District conducted five health inspections within the past week at local restaurants and at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital.

The health inspector noted critical violations at three establishments.

Mr. BBQ, 5174 College Corner Pike, received a clean inspection with no violations. On July 19, the district also inspected Oxford Sushi King, 37 E. High St., but did not publish report details on its website.

El Burrito Loco Mexican Food, 102 Locust St., received three critical and four non-critical violations from the health district July 14. The restaurant corrected two critical violations, given for insufficient air flow around drainage pipes and hot food being kept below advised temperatures during the inspection. The third critical violation was assigned for keeping cold food at higher temperatures than advised.

Starbucks Coffee, 19-21 E. High St., received one critical violation for insufficient air flow around drainage pipes. Non-critical violations were given for the state of the physical facilities and ventilation systems.

McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital, 110 N. Poplar St., received one critical violation for inaccessibility to a hand-washing sink. The food cart which was blocking access was moved during the July 15 inspection. The hospital received three non-critical violations for the state of its physical facilities.
