Enterprise Restaurant Update

Here's an update on the Enterprise restaurant that was temporarily closed Wednesday after health officials discovered a goat carcass in the kitchen.

On Tuesday, Coffee County Public Health Department Inspector Wanda Edberg temporarily closed El Patio Restaurant. She says a goat carcass was being processed in the Enterprise restaurant and that all meat items in a restaurant have to be USDA inspected.
The business was closed for two hours to remove the un-inspected meat and sanitize the premises.

Two regular El Patio customers were shocked to hear about what was taking place and they don't expect to be coming back.

An unidentified employee "denied" a goat was ever in the kitchen.

Health department officials say they do not wage fines or other penalties for such infractions at a food eatery.

Coffee County Health Department officials plan to do follow-up inspections at El Patio to make sure there are no more problems there.
