Panda Express passes restaurant inspection, though some problems observed
A Panda Express restaurant in Memorial recently passed its Harris County food inspection test, though inspectors did note a few problems.
The location of the Chinese food chain at 2552 Eldridge Pkwy. had its most recent inspection on Dec. 27, 2010. The restaurant passed with six demerits out of a possible 100. An establishment must receive a demerit score of 20 or higher to automatically generate a follow-up inspection.
During their visit, inspectors asked the restaurant to correct a problem with its hand-washing facilities. They also stated that certain required safety warnings were missing. But, neither of these problems is of the types most associated with food-borne illness, according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines.
The same location received a similar score during an inspection in April 2010, though it also received a perfect score in August of that year.
