Dirty Dining: Vegas Express Sushi
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Temperature is key when it comes to storing seafood. And that's exactly what got one Valley sushi spot in trouble with health inspectors.
Salmon, tuna and imitation crab all found at the wrong temperatures. That's just one of the issues found at Vegas Express Sushi located inside Smith's grocery store on West Tropicana and South Hualapai. The Southern Nevada Health District recently slapped Vegas Express Sushi place with a 35 demerit C grade.
The refrigerator wasn't maintaining the proper temperature. The health report states that the fridge needs to be repaired or replaced.
In addition, there was not a thermometer inside the display case where prepared food was laid out. Inspectors also saw an employee improperly washing kitchenware and an employee was cited for not knowing the health policy.
Our cameras were not allowed in the grocery store, but Vegas Express Sushi Manager, Jennifer Xie, issued this statement: "We have fixed the refrigerator and made the necessary changes. Our seafood is very fresh and safe to eat."
The Southern Nevada Health District says Vegas Express Sushi has been reinspected. It's now operating with a 6 demerit A grade.
