Sprouts touts healthy living but fails Restaurant Report Card | FOX31 …

DENVER — Every week, FOX31 looks at health inspections at restaurants in metro Denver and along the Front Range.

Sprouts Farmers Market — Thornton

The Thornton location failed the report card with 12 critical health code violations in April 2018 and April 2017.

The mistakes included:

  • Meat department employee wiping hands on apron
  • Hot and cold food were not at the right temperature
  • An employee was eating

“Our top priority is the health and safety of our guests, and we are committed to ensuring clean and sanitary conditions for our customers and team members,” Sprouts Farmers Market said in a statement.

“The Thornton store immediately took action to address the violations and received a follow-up inspection with no violations observed. We work hard to partner with all regulatory agencies towards improving every day.”

The Sprouts in Thornton is at 1131 E. 120th Ave.

Mount Fuji Japanese Hibachi — Westminster

A Tri County inspector cited the restaurant for 11 critical health code violations in April.

The issues included:

  • Person in charge did not know food safety
  • Employee washing their hands with cold water
  • Raw chicken stored above ready to eat cabbage

The restaurant did not respond to calls and emails and a manager was unable to speak in-person.

Mount Fuji Japanese Hibachi is at 14643 Orchard Parkway in Westminster. It passed its follow-up inspection.

Hilario’s Mexican Restaurant

The “A” goes to Hilario’s Mexican Restaurant in Lakewood for going three years without a critical violation.

“We follow the rules with the health inspections. It’s not really hard to make the ‘A,’ but you have to follow the rules and train your workers you hire, first hire and that’s pretty much what we do here,” owner Hilario Banuelos said.

“This is our second time and we are very honored to make the ‘A’ plus. Hopefully, in the future we can get another ‘A’ or that would be nice.”

Hilario’s is at 955 S. Kipling Parkway.

How restaurants appear on the Report Card

Restaurant Report Card features health inspections in the city and county of Denver, Jefferson County, Weld County, Broomfield and restaurants under the jurisdiction of the Tri-County Health Department. The Tri-County Health Department includes Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties.

An inspection is a “snapshot” of what is happening during the day and time of the inspection. On any given day, a restaurant could have more or fewer violations than noted in an inspection. Also, at the time of an inspection, violations are recorded and can be corrected prior to the inspector leaving the restaurant. If violations are not corrected, a follow-up inspection is scheduled.

The criteria FOX31 Denver uses to give a restaurant a failing grade includes the evaluation of two unannounced inspections by county health inspectors. A failing restaurant must have five or four critical violations on their most recent regular inspection and five or four critical violations on the previous regular inspection. The restaurant may also fail for nine or ten or more violations in one inspection. Health inspectors may conduct critical or follow-up inspections, due to the number of critical violations found during a regular inspection. Those inspections may also be considered for our reports. We recognize restaurants with two regular inspections in a row, with no critical violations, by awarding them an A.

Healthy Living: Robot Heart Repairs

Three million Americans every year struggle with a leaky mitral valve.

The condition can put strain on the heart, and can cause the muscle to flutter, or beat irregularly.

Now, a minimally invasive procedure is helping patients get back on their feet faster.

We show you how in Healthy Living.

Dr. Murphy says not every patient with a mitral valve leak needs surgery.

If the leak is mild, most doctors will monitor the condition closely to make sure it doesn’t get worse.

Spreading the message of healthy living

International Yoga Day was observed by Cabinet Ministers, civil servants, police and people from different walks of life across the city. On Thursday morning, yoga sessions began with Governor of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, E.S.L. Narasimhan, performing around 20 asanas with students from city schools at Raj Bhavan.

“It’s our responsibility to treasure the ancient knowledge system for posterity,” Mr. Narasimhan said before the commencement of the event at his official residence.

Breathing exercises

The Governor, who attended the event along with his wife, Vimala Narasimhan, advised people to practice breathing exercises for at least 10 to 15 minutes a day. Yoga instructor Ravi Kishore conducted the session at Raj Bhavan.

Another massive yoga session was organised at Gachibowli Stadium in which Health Minister C. Laxma Reddy took part. The headquarters of all police divisions, including Rachakonda, Cyberabad and Hyderabad, observed the yoga day. At Rachakonda police headquarters at Amberpet, 600 police personnel performed yoga.

After the United Nation’s Organisation declared June 21 as International Yoga Day, dedicated to inner and outer well-being of the body, the day has been celebrated every year by many. Yoga sessions were also conducted by Basavatarakam Indo-American Cancer Hospital, Bharat Dynamics Ltd and KIMS Cuddles, among others.

Government institutions, including Telangana Forest Department and Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board, organised events to mark the yoga day. Officials also took part in yoga sessions at district administrative offices in the city.

Participants wanted for no-cost, Type 2 diabetes prevention, healthy living class

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) – Between 10.7 to 11% of Wichita County residents have Type 2 diabetes.
And though that may not seem serious, it’s enough for a local health organization to want to help educate Texomans.

The Wichita County Public Health District is inviting those diagnosed or not with Type 2 diabetes, ages 18 and up, to learn how to either prevent it or live a healthier lifestyle. 
The organization is getting the word out, because right now, there aren’t enough people to fill a class.
Ironically, this healthy living class is now in its third year, free to participants and is pending national recognition. Though it is a year-long class, the program director says, it’s not just sitting in a classroom.
Participants will learn hands-on healthy eating, exercise and much more.

“It’s hard for people that struggle with how to eat right,” Laci Edwards, Community Diabetes Education Program Director said. “It’s very easy to fall into unhealthy habits and you don’t understand why the scale is not moving. We’re hoping people just learn how to live a better life, how to be healthier and how to put physical activity into it. A lot of people don’t like physical activity; but it’s a needed, needed, needed, needed function,” stated Edwards.

The program is being paid for with a grant.
Edwards says if transportation to and from class is an issue, not to worry.
They will pay for those in need.

They are looking to have from 10 to 20 people for the class, which will start July 2nd.
