Brown slime highlights Houston restaurant violations (Dec. 30 – Jan. 5)

Inspectors observed brown slime in the chute/under ice-maker machine at a Houston restaurant last week, according to health inspection records.

At a second Houston restaurant, inspectors observed pork held in a walk-in cooler not safe for human consumption, the records show.

Each week, Houston health inspectors distribute violations that carry a weight between 1 and 25, increasing in severity. The term “demerit” is used by city health inspectors to describe the weighted value assigned to each violation.

The Houston Chronicle obtained the results of routine health inspections throughout the city and tallied each restaurant’s demerits for a comprehensive list of violations.
