One organization in Douglas County failed state health code inspections in November, and several others moved back into compliance after failing inspections in October.

Each month, I take a look at inspection results and list every place either listed out of compliance or with 10 or more code violations. Full reports are available online at agriculture.ks.gov.

There, you can find details about specific violations, which can vary. Noncritical citations include unlabeled products, improperly stored cleaning materials, minor plumbing issues and more. Critical violations include cross-contamination of raw and cooked foods, insect and rodent issues, unclean food preparation areas and more.

Some violations may be corrected during the inspection, while others take longer to fix and require follow-up inspections.

All businesses, even those listed out of compliance, met the basic requirements to safely remain open, unless otherwise noted.

With this regular report, I try to provide basic information about food inspections in Douglas County. But because of the sheer volume of inspections, it’s difficult to offer detailed information about each establishment.

The only organization that failed its inspection in November was Shenago Lounge, 1520 Wakarusa Drive, Suite D. The bar last had a routine inspection on Nov. 14 and one violation was found. It is currently listed as out of compliance.

Seven organizations that were found out of compliance in October are now back in compliance:

• Dillons Store #068, 300 W. Sixth St., last had a follow-up inspection on Nov. 13 and no violations were found. The grocery store is currently listed as in compliance.

• Oriental Bistro and Grill, 1511 W. 23rd St., last had a follow-up inspection on Nov. 13 and one violation was found. The restaurant is currently listed as in compliance.

• Perkins Family Restaurant and Bakery, 1711 W. 23rd St., last had a follow-up inspection on Nov. 13 and no violations were found. The restaurant is currently listed as in compliance.

• Java Break, 17 E. Seventh St., last had a follow-up inspection on Nov. 19 and no violations were found. The coffee shop is currently listed as in compliance.

• Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, 1540 Louisiana St., last had a follow- up inspection on Nov. 5 and no violations were found. The fraternity is currently listed as in compliance.

• Cielito Lindo Mexican Restaurant, 815 New Hampshire St., last had a follow-up inspection on Nov. 20 and no violations were found. The restaurant is currently listed as in compliance.

Many organizations that were found out of compliance in recent months have not yet had follow-up inspections: The Burger Stand, 803 Massachusetts St.; Mi Ranchito, 707 W. 23rd St.; John Brown Underground/Wake the Dead, 7 E. Seventh St.; Ramen Bowls, 918 Massachusetts St.; and Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, 1115 Massachusetts St; Wagon Wheel Cafe, 507 W. 14th St.; F-Mart, 530 Colorado St.; Quinton’s Bar and Deli, 615 Massachusetts St.; Triangle fraternity, 1144 W. 11th St.; Lucia Beer Garden and Grill, 1016 Massachusetts St.; and India Palace, 129 E. 10th St.
