Gross Out: Towel Trouble at Tomaso's
Of the last five restaurant inspections completed at Tomaso's Italian restaurant on East Camelback Road in Phoenix, five resulted in a failing grade.
At the most recent inspection, in early March, the inspector noted dried food debris on the interior of the microwave and surfaces of the slicer. The meat bandsaw for cutting steaks contained "excessive dried raw meat residue".
And so on.
But the worst thing on the inspection report?
"Noted employee handle several types of raw meat (fish, chicken), then wipe hands on towel, and use same towel to wipe plate for customer service. Employee did not wash hands between tasks."
