STORY: Jacksonville among top 10 cities in Florida with unfixed car recalls

One of the most popular restaurants at the St. Johns Town Center had issues with food temperature that could have made customers sick.

The Cheesecake Factory was issued a stop sale on three items due to temperature issues, including pasta and sprouts.

The inspector also noticed expired whip cream.

The Cheesecake Factory met all inspection requirements because all of the issues were fixed during the inspection.

Two other restaurants had high-priority health violations this week:

At the Deerwood Deli & Diner on Old Baymeadows Road, an inspector noted expired chicken salad. An employee touched ready-to-eat food with their bare hands and saw a lemon with mold-like growth on it.

A follow up inspection at Deerwood is required.
 
At Popeye’s Fried Chicken on McDuff Avenue in Jacksonville, the inspector saw more than 10 live flies in the restaurant.  Other high-priority violations included an employee not properly washing or drying their hands. The lettuce was also held too warm.

A follow up inspection at Popeye’s is required.
