King County health officials shut down Issaquah restaurant Macky’s Dim Sum for health violations again Dec. 10 after a health-related shutdown in October.

Public Health – Seattle & King County cited the restaurant for similar reasons in both instances, including food stored at unsafe temperatures.

In the most recent report, inspectors dinged the eatery for improperly cooling potentially hazardous food, storing potentially hazardous foods at unsafe temperatures, lacking adequate facilities to control temperatures for potentially hazardous food, and failing to correct repeated violations.

The agency shut down the restaurant at 3:40 p.m. Dec. 10, and the eatery reopened at 4 p.m. Dec. 13.

Public Health – Seattle & King County inspectors often issue warnings to restaurant owners before a closure is ordered.

The agency closed the restaurant, 317 N.W. Gilman Blvd., No. 43, from 4 p.m. Oct. 2 to 11:25 a.m. Oct. 4 for a round of violations.

In the October incident, officials cited the restaurant for hand-washing facilities, foods not protected from cross contamination, improperly cooling potentially hazardous food, keeping potentially hazardous foods at unsafe temperatures and failing to adhere to the approved risk control plan.

The reasons for closing a food establishment can vary, and include such issues as failure to follow the permit process and unsafe food handling.

Macky’s Dim Sum opened in Gilman Village in early 2010.
