Dur­ing a re­cent in­spec­tion, a Coast casino’s em­ployee din­ing room was cited for crit­i­cal vi­o­la­tions.

A Coast casino’s em­ployee din­ing room has been cited for crit­i­cal vi­o­la­tions dur­ing re­cent in­spec­tions, re­ports by the Mis­sis­sippi State Depart­ment of Health show.

The em­ployee din­ing area at Hard Rock Casino Biloxi is the only food provider in South Mis­sis­sippi to re­ceive crit­i­cal vi­o­la­tions dur­ing health depart­ment in­spec­tions in the past two weeks.

Many casi­nos have din­ing halls for em­ploy­ees that are sep­a­rate from the pub­lic restau­rants for cus­tomers.

Here’s what the re­port says:

Hard Rock - Em­ployee Din­ing, 777 Beach Blvd., Biloxi: On Dec. 4, was not in com­pli­ance with ad­e­quate hand wash­ing fa­cil­i­ties sup­plied/ ac­ces­si­ble; food con­tact sur­face cleaned/san­i­tized; and proper cold hold­ing tem­per­a­tures. The tem­per­a­ture vi­o­la­tion was cor­rected dur­ing the in­spec­tion. The din­ing hall re­ceived a C on May 4 for a re­peat vi­o­la­tion in­volv­ing hand wash­ing fa­cil­i­ties and a food con­tact is­sue, and a B in a re-in­spec­tion on May 24.

Restau­rants and other food venues re­ceive an A if they pass a state in­spec­tion, and a B if vi­o­la­tions are cor­rected dur­ing the in­spec­tion. A score of C is given for crit­i­cal vi­o­la­tions. Food ser­vice providers also are re­quired to post their lat­est in­spec­tion re­port where the pub­lic can see the cur­rent rat­ing.

Three Coast busi­nesses re­ceived crit­i­cal vi­o­la­tions dur­ing in­spec­tions on Nov. 20 — Panda Palace Buf­fet, 15200 Cross­roads Pkwy, Gulf­port; Star­bucks 2404 Pass Road, Biloxi, and Sub­way #5896, 2727 U.S. 90, Gau­tier.

All three have since re­ceived a B in a fol­lowup in­spec­tion.
