Health Inspectors Cite Levittown Red Mango for Critical Violation

Health inspectors recently cited Levittown Red Mango during the most recent recorded inspection for a critical violation, according to data supplied by the New York State Department of Health. 

The critical violation was due to “toxic chemicals improperly labeled, stored or used so that contamination of food can occur” according to the data. 

Other non-critical violations included:

- “Food not protected during storage, preparation, display, transportation and service, from potential sources of contamination  (e.g., food uncovered, mislabeled, stored on floor, missing or inadequate sneeze guards, food containers double stacked).”

- “Plumbing and sinks not properly sized, installed, maintained; equipment and floors not properly drained. “

- “Handwashing facilities inaccessible, improperly located, dirty, in disrepair, improper fixtures, soap and single service towels or hand drying devices missing.”

- “Adequate, leakproof, non-absorbent, vermin-proof, covered containers not provided where needed;

- "Lighting and ventilation inadequate, fixtures not shielded, dirty ventilation hoods, ductwork, filters, exhaust fans.”

Red Mango opened in August of 2012. The last record of inspection is Sept. 19, 2012, according to the Department of Health.

Collected from the “Health Data NY” section of the New York “Open Data Portal,” the searchable map above includes food service establishments located in the Levittown area which were cited for “critical violations” during the last recorded inspection by the state health department.

Ummm don't understand how sinks can pass the original inspection and now be undersized. Someone in the building department better have a relative working for mangano.

The violations are " grouped" in possibilities. IE:That sink may have been missing soap at the time of inspection which would be a violation of that law. What is lacking is the inspector in all their wisdom failed to specify the problem. Should be written as ; Sink in disrepair or not maintained (the actual violation) " in that soap not provided". Sheds a whole new light in things. The report is simply listing the sanitary health law that was found in violation whats missing is the actual violations which may be no soap, no top for the garbage can (not vermin proof) etc.
