SPRING VALLEY LAKE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — An A card on display at the Spring Valley Lake Country Club was confiscated by a county health inspector after it was placed over an existing B card, officials said.
On December 20, 2019, the establishment was noted for various reasons including dead cockroaches and six employees working without a current/valid food handlers permit, according to the San Bernardino County Public Health report.
The inspector noted multiple dead cockroaches and remainings under the compartment located under the preparation table across from the 3-compartment sink. The issue was corrected on-site when an employee cleaned and sanitized the affected area, per the report.
As a result of the findings, the restaurant received 81 points and the inspector posted a B grade on the window.
On January 3, 2020, the inspector was back out at the Spring Valley Lake Country Club after receiving a complaint stating the country club still had their “A” grade posted after knowingly receiving a B grade.
According to the report, during the inspection an “A” grade placard dated 12/6/18 was observed displayed directly over “B” Grade card (preventing “B” from being seen), which was dated and posted 12/20/19. “A” grade placard was confiscated by the inspector at the time of complaint investigation, leaving the “B” grade placard visible for customers to view.
The country club was advised not to remove, relocate, or obstruct the view of most current grade.
To protect the health of Californians, the San Bernardino County health inspectors often visit restaurants across the Victor Valley searching for health code violations. The results are posted online by the San Bernardino County Public Health Department.
All items noted in the initial inspection report about the facility were resolved by the business.
