Kansas Department of Agriculture’s food safety and lodging program conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on 7/13/2020. As a result of that inspection, and due to the severity of the specific violations Los Cabos Fajita House was cited as being, “Out of Compliance” with Kansas food safety regulations. During this inspection a total of 6 violations were found.

The inspector made the following comments in support of the violations found during the inspection:

  • They had 2 cases of ROP salmon portions that had been placed in the WIC on Saturday without being slit open, when a freezer quit working. COS educated about cutting a slit in each portion to decrease the chance of botulism and discarded.

Also in the other WIC there was raw ground beef not leaking directly above a box of fresh raw broccoli. COS educated and rearranging so all raw is below the ready to eat products.
  • In the reach in cooler ther was raw shell eggs in a metal pan not leaking directly above bottled commercially made dressings. Also there was a raw salmon filet not leaking, directly above cooked carnitas. COS educated and moved the pan of eggs to bottom shelf of another cooler, and the salmon to the bottom shelf too.
  • The hand sink at the bar water was at 87F. PIC called the plumber to come fix it.
  • The hand sink in the bar area did not have any hand soap. COS educated and supplied hand soap.
