Hear about how restaurants in Lexington end up on probation by Fayette County Health Department's environmental health coordinator Skip Castleman and supervisor Luke Mathis.

Since 2015, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department has placed restaurants and food service providers on probation when they fail an inspection with a score of 84 or lower, or when they have a critical violation that cannot be immediately remedied. Inspections are a snapshot of a restaurant or food-service establishment at a particular time.

As of early February, there were about 160 restaurants and food service providers on probation, with about 30 added between Dec. 26 and Feb. 6. The Herald-Leader plans to update readers periodically on restaurants that are on the list. You can also search by restaurant in the Herald-Leader’s online database of inspection.

Several food service establishments came off probation last month: China Kitchen, 3094 Richmond Road; KFC-Pizza Hut, 1907 Plaudit Place; Lighthouse Ministries, 190 Spruce Street; and UK Samaritan Hospital, 310 S. Limestone Street. Mumbai Masala, 102 W. High Street, closed, so it’s off the list.

One restaurant that was closed in December, La Casa de Mama, reopened Jan. 10 with a score of 95.

Restaurants come off probation after they pass two consecutive regular inspections without any critical violations. Critical violations are those deemed by the FDA to have the highest potential to affect the public health adversely, such as a lack of hand-washing or improper dish sanitizing.

Restaurants on probation are inspected three times a year instead of two; the increased scrutiny is designed to catch potential health hazards, said Luke Mathis, team leader for environmental health.

Here are the restaurants currently on probation, when they were placed on probation and why, and their latest scores as of Feb. 8, according to the health department.
