Two local eateries failed health inspections in August. Here’s what you need to know.

Umi Star

2502 N. Campbell Ave.

History: The new restaurant received a good rating earlier this year.

What the inspector saw: Six critical violations on Aug. 6. The most serious were foods kept at the wrong temperatures and cooks not washing their hands between handling raw foods and ready-to-eat foods.

Follow-up: Health department staff hasn’t yet re-inspected the restaurant.

Response: Owner Jason Anderson said the issues were corrected immediately.

Mr. Antojo

1012 E. Sixth St.

History: The company’s other location, 501 N. Park Ave., had good and excellent ratings since 2010.

What the inspector saw: Nine critical violations on Aug. 22. The most serious were foods kept at the wrong temperatures and the person in charge couldn’t correctly answer the inspector’s food-safety questions. The inspector recommended staff take a food-safety class.

Follow-up: Passed Sept. 4.

Response: Two messages were not returned.
