Dangerous temperatures cited in Woodbridge food service inspection

WOODBRIDGE — A school and an assisted living facility are shortlisted for local agencies to undergo food safety re-inspection or follow-up this year, according to the Quinnipiac Valley Health District.

Of the roughly two dozen food service establishments in Woodbridge, three were cited for food temperature violations, requiring them to be re-inspected, records show. All three establishments had refrigeration issues that caused food temperatures to rise to unsafe levels, according to inspection reports.

However, several Woodbridge businesses have yet to undergo food safety inspections in 2022. These include Coachman Square in Woodbridge, Woodbridge Gas LLC, Starbucks, Chip in a Bottle and Solun.

“We’re a little bit behind, most health departments are behind,” said QVHD hygienist John Laudano. “There is a huge backlog of restaurants to inspect.”

The total number of food service establishments in town includes quick service and dine-in restaurants, delicatessens, schools, grocery stores, and convenience stores. The recommended frequency of inspections typically ranges from 1 to 3 per year, depending on the type of business.
