Non-closed inspections of note
Here are facilities that were not closed but had other important issues in their inspections.
Castanedas Mex Food, at 6751 Indiana Ave. in Riverside, was inspected on March 6 and received a failing class of 80 / B, with three critical violations. Two employees were not washing their hands properly while cooking; which led to a related violation of contaminated food. And some cooked jalapenos and chili rellenos were not kept at a safe temperature. In a minor breach, the inspector found a Ryobi drill – not certified for food use – used to tear steak and told the plant to stop doing so.
Guadalajara Grill Restaurant, 27780 Jefferson Ave. Suite 2 in Temecula was inspected on March 5 in connection with a food-borne disease investigation and received a failing class of 81 / B with three critical breaches. A cooler that kept meat and vegetables not kept enough food cold; it was shot and all food inside was thrown away.

About this list
The county routinely inspects and characterizes all facilities that handle open, unpacked food. An A-character (90 to 100 points) passes by. Degrees of B (80-89 points) and C (79 or below) usually fail and require the proprietor to make improvements and inspect. A facility may be temporarily closed due to a large breach that cannot be rectified immediately.
This list will be published on Fridays. Any updates that restaurants will reopen will be included in the next week's list.
