A poorly working refrigerator got a convenience store in Tioga a cold reception from the Grayson County Health Department recently. The Triangle 66 store, 401 N. Hwy. 377, received a “C”, the lowest grade in the most recent round of health department inspections.


The inspection report said a refrigerator in the establishment was detected to be holding food at a temperature that was much to warm to be safe. The staff were told to discard the food and not use the refrigerator again until it could be fixed. Staff was also observed not washing their hands prior to putting on gloves and there was no cold water in the hand washing sink.


The establishment also failed to post a health department permit and didn’t have paper towels at the hand washing sink. The inspection noted that the establishment would be inspected again in 30 days.


The Grayson County Health Department rates restaurants and other establishments that serve food based on their adherence to codes set by the Texas Department of Health. Restaurants are given an “A,” “B,” “C” or “F” score. An “A” means sanitarians reported no or only a few minor violations. Those with a “B” were found to have several minor violations, but nothing major. Restaurants with a “C” might have a major violation or repeat offenses, but in the inspectors’ opinions, nothing bad enough to warrant an “F.”


An “A” means sanitarians reported 10 or fewer demerits. Those with a “B” received 11-20 demerits. Restaurants with a “C” had 21-30 demerits and restaurants with “F” ratings received more than 30 demerits.
