A Coast casino cafe and two fast-food places have been cited for crit­i­cal vi­o­la­tions, in­clud­ing one that in­volves flies, roaches, mice or other crit­ters.

The three food venues are the only South Mississippi busi­nesses to be cited dur­ing re­cent in­spec­tions by the Mississippi State De­part­ment of Health, on­line re­ports show.

Aside from crit­ters, en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists cited other food ser­vice providers for is­sues in­volv­ing pro­tec­tion from con­tam­i­na­tion, po­ten­tially haz­ardous food and a lack of cer­ti­fied su­per­vi­sion.

The health de­part­ment gives restau­rants and other food ser­vice providers 10 days to cor­rect vi­o­la­tions of regulations be­fore a state en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist holds an­other in­spec­tion.

ALL FOOD SER­VICE PROVIDERS ARE RE­QUIRED TO POST THEIR LAT­EST IN­SPEC­TION RE­PORT WHERE CUS­TOMERS CAN SEE THE CUR­RENT RAT­ING.

THE CRIT­I­CAL VI­O­LA­TIONS

● Church’s Chicken, 3381 Main St., Moss Point: On Jan. 10, in­sects, ro­dents or an­i­mals were found. On­line re­ports don’t give spe­cific de­tails on what type of crit­ter was found. Church’s has re­ceived a score of A in pre­vi­ous in­spec­tions since its in­spec­tion re­ports were first pub­lished Jan. 11, 2018.

● Hard Rock Cafe, 777 Beach Blvd., Biloxi: On Jan. 3, had a re­peat vi­o­la­tion of food con­tact sur­face cleaned/san­i­tized, and did not have proper cold hold­ing tem­per­a­tures. The vi­o­la­tions were cor­rected dur­ing the in­spec­tion. Hard Rock Casino’s cafe has re­ceived one other crit­i­cal vi­o­la­tion since its on­line re­ports were first pub­lished Aug. 31, 2010.

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