re: Golden Corral's Got Some Splainin' To Do


Every inspector I ever dealt with (and I was in management of the kitchen, not front end) were more like Nazis than any other professional I've dealt with in any other setting

Just my 2 cents

quote:

This isn’t the first time a Golden Corral has gotten into trouble with its food. In December a restaurant in Wyoming was suspected of causing a food poisoning outbreak that sickened dozens of people. More than 150 cases of foodborne illness were reported near Casper, Wyoming, prompting a visit from health officials.

The outbreak was accompanied by reports of unsanitary conditions at the Golden Corral. One customer said he found a stack of 25 plates in the buffet line, all of them dirty and encrusted with remains of food. News of the food poisoning outbreak also prompted other diners to air their grievances on Yelp.

“The floors were so dirty,” one reviewer wrote, while another complained of “raw, undercooked meatloaf and chicken.”

David Giesen, president of franchisee Golden DBL Inc. of Denver, said the Wyoming incident caused Golden Corral to double down on its safety and sanitary procedures.

The person who uploaded the Golden Corral video to YouTube claimed he alerted the owner that food was being stored next to the dumpster to avoid health inspectors, but the owner was dismissive of the claims.

To prevent this, perhaps the health inspectors shouldnt call ahead.


Exactly. My father was in the restaurant business...if you get the right inspector, you know weeks in advance.

But how can a $5 buffet, that serves all you can eat baby back ribs and steak, be shady?

The inspectors called ahead?! They just show up about every 3 months on me usually during or right after the lunch rush to catch us slipping.

When people ask me what offshore food is like I tell them it's like Golden Corral, only 100x worse....

ETA....if Aramark is doing the catering, it's 1000x worse.

Y'all are being trolled by this video.



Also, it seems unlikely that the guy would risk his job just to troll the internet.

BOOM

y'all OT veterans should know better than this when you're being trolled or something has been staged for maximum 'shock effect'.


i bet dickhead (who wanted his 15 minutes of reddit fame) was told to dispose of all that food and thought he'd carry out efverything in the trays first and make a SHOCK VIDEO while claiming GC was doing this.

naive OT

After watching shows like Kitchen Nightmares nothing surprises me. Maybe they didn't have enough cooler space so they put it outside so the inspector would tag them for storing in food unrefrigerated in the facility.

Employees aren't allowed to move in most cases when inspections are going on. Certainly not hauling food around while inspector clouseau test the dish water temp

Seriously. And I'd never eat at a Golden Corral but I've managed enough joints that got inspections to know this is bogus


Not saying it isn't bogus, because I said from the start there isn't something adding up.

But he said that this was done before the inspector came.

And according to comments, he already tried to report this through more proper channels.
