kron 4 has been investigating health violations at local grocery stores. ever since we uncovered maggots in a meat case at a bay area whole foods. now, kron 4's dan kerman reports, one day after a safeway store claims. they've cleaned up their act, the health department finds more disturbing high risk practices. it's a story you'll see only on kron 4. a follow up inspection of this safeway in san francisco's diamond heights finds high risk health violations persist it was late last month when the health department first discovered the violations during a routine inspection: employees picking food labels off the floor, putting them on cooked meat and then touching raw meat without washing their hands. inspectors also found unclean or improper sanitizing of food surfaces and utensils. and hot and cold food being kept at unsafe temperatures.
11:01 pm
sot richard lee/ san francisco department of public health: the violations are high risk and therefore there's a higher chance of food born illness. when the inspection was completed this safeway got a score of only 66 out of a possible 100 sot richard lee/ san francisco department of public health: this is probably in the lower 5% of the food facilities we inspect when contacted safeway issued a statement saying: the concerns raised at the diamond heights store centered on two areas: fat temperature, and employees following our policies and procedures. both areas were addressed immediately." but that's not what the public health department found. : on wednesday the health department returned to this safeway some 15 days after their initial inspection. what did they find? well it's all in this report. they found employees coughing into their hands, they found employees touching their faces and then not washing their hands, they found food being held at improper temperatures and they found food surfaces and utensils not being sanitized properly.

san francisco county public health officer dr. tomas aragon says "coming back two weeks later and having that occurring is not good." he plans to meet with inspectors friday to determine the department's next course of action : the public health department says this safeway continues to score lower than all other safeways in san francisco. and in fact their rating has dropped year over year for the past 4 years. now the health department wants to know why. could it be bad management? could it be poor training? they don't know at this point but they say they are going to find out. in san francisco, dan kerman, kron 4 news. when confronted with this follow- up report. safeway sent us a new statement saying. quote - "a number of issues noted on 4/22/14 were addressed and corrected. as to issues raised yesterday. , additional steps have been taken with individual employees as appropriate, up to and including disciplinary action."
