CHILD MOLESTER WHO MOLESTED TWO GIRLS TO BE RE-COMMITTED AS SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATOR

A few weeks ago we took a look at the health inspection record of Disney’s top restaurants – and it was somewhat shocking. Even the new hard to get into Carthay Circle restaurant, at California Adventures, had two major food safety violations when it was inspected on Nov. 29, 2012.
Now it’s time to have a look at the food safety record of the restaurants and eateries at Knott’s Berry Farm. Let’s see if they’re any better…and keep in mind the fact that Orange County’s Supervisors chose a few years ago not to use letter-grade health ratings at our restaurants, which is why you will never know how bad a restaurant really is unless you click here and look up their food safety inspection records.
And what better place to start our food safety review of Knott’s than their famous Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant! They were inspected by the Orange County Health Care Agency on August 22, 2012, and here is what those intrepid inspectors found: Continue reading
