History: Since 2008, all permitted facilities in this Whole Foods location have almost exclusively received inspection ratings of good or excellent. The supermarket had one previous needs improvement, and this was its first failed inspection.
What the inspector saw: The sole violation observed by the inspector was a cooler not keeping food at established temperatures. Because it wasn’t resolved during the inspection, the deli earned a needs improvement rating.
Follow-up: The deli failed a follow-up inspection on June 19 and passed another on June 29.
Response: Manager Clinton Jessup said that it took a little tinkering, but the cooler was eventually brought into compliance. He noted that every other store department passed their inspections.
