KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A grocery store in Kanawha County has reopened after it failed an inspection.

The FasChek in Malden was forced to closed on Monday after a routine inspection.

According to an inspection report, inspectors found the FasChek in Malden in violation of 36 food and safety codes. Inspectors say they considered a third of those violations critical such as: raw pork stored above cheese in a cooler, a meat grinder not clean to sight, a pipe leaking in meat room and water spraying on meat trays.

A spokesperson with the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department tells WSAZ.com the store was allowed to reopen about 2 p.m. Wednesday once inspectors found the critical violations were fixed.

The spokesperson also says the the store will be on probation until a future inspection finds the store stays compliant. The inspection will take place in the next 30 days.

The owner of the FasChek has declined to comment.

KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A popular grocery store in Kanawha County was forced to shut its doors after a visit from the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department Monday.

Inspectors found the Fas Chek in Malden in violation of 36 food and safety codes. Inspectors considered a third of those violations critical such as: raw pork stored above cheese in a cooler, a meat grinder not clean to sight, a pipe leaking in meat room, and water spraying on meat trays.

”I was pretty shocked. It has always been pretty clean,” customer Christina Skaggs said.

Other customers also seemed unworried by the violations.

“Yes, I'll definitely come back. They have good service, and anytime I’ve had a problem they've helped me locate what I need,” customer Richard Blankenship said.

The Health Department will have to re-inspect the Fas Chek and make sure they have corrected all violations before they can reopen.

The owner of the Fas Chek declined to comment.
