Sauce Bar & Burgers received a consumer alert from the Allegheny County Health Department on Thursday.
According to the health department’s web site:
A Consumer Alert was posted at the subject facility for Multiple coolers not maintaining proper product temperature/unsafe cold holding, Unsafe hot holding, Improper cooling, Toxic items improperly labeled, stored or used, Presence of insects, rodents, other animals, Inadequate sanitization.
A consumer alert is a warning to the public that conditions noted at the time of inspection pose a health risk to the consumer. However, the health department notes that:
It must be mentioned that the type and quantity of violations found in a facility are dynamic, changing from day to day. Observations made at the time of inspection, while a good approximation of a facility’s overall sanitary condition, are truly unique to that day. Therefore, an inspection is essentially a “snapshot;” a small piece of the overall picture of a facility’s operation.
