Inspector finds hygiene violations at Dunkin’ Donuts in The Villages

A health inspector found hygiene violations during a recent visit to a Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant in The Villages.

The violations were found Aug. 31 at the Dunkin’ Donuts at Southern Trace Plaza on County Road 466, according to a report from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation

There were two high-priority violations:

• An employee “touched bare body part and then engaged in food preparation, handled clean equipment or utensils, or touched unwrapped single-service items without washing hands. Server touched headset then uniforms, then food.” 

• “Employee touching ready-to-eat food with their bare hands – ready-to-eat food intended to be heated as a sole ingredient not immediately heated to 145 degrees F after bare hand contact.”

The inspector also found an employee had an “ineffective hair restraint while engaging in food preparation.”

Intermediate violations included lack of a food manager certification and no proof of employee training.

There was also the accumulation of black/green mold in the interior of an ice machine and an employee had a beverage container on a food preparation table.

The restaurant was not shut down, but a follow-up inspection was required, according to DPBR records.
