Today’s Spotlight Question

“Just wondered how the iced tea in restaurants is tested because I’ve gotten sour tea several times from one restaurant in town.”


Shelly’s Answer

“Iced tea is not required to be tested in retail food facilities. They are however, required to clean the containers every 24 hours. You can always report unhygienic practices to the local public health agency and they will investigate your concerns.”

  1. No excuse that its not required… If you care about your customers you wash the container ecery time it’s emptied or at the end of each day. I personally test all things like this. Its just good business!
