According to results from a follow-up inspection of O’Donovan Hall published this week, the cafeteria is now in compliance with D.C. health regulations.
The second inspection, which was conducted Sept. 24, came after inspectors found six critical and two non-critical violations of the code during a routine check-in of the dining hall earlier that month.
According to the DOH report on the first inspection, a food establishment with six or more critical violations would typically be closed immediately. Georgetown’s dining hall was allowed to remain operative because it corrected two of the critical violations — improper separation and protection of different foods and the absence of an advisory notice warning diners about raw or undercooked foods — during the course of the inspection.
Leo’s addressed the remaining violations — unclean food surfaces, improper temperatures for holding cold food, worn-out cutting boards, a broken walk-in cooler, that some employees did not wear hair restraints and that the facility lacked chemical strips for testing sanitizing solutions — in the following weeks, and was completely in compliance with D.C. code at the time of the Sept. 24 inspection.
