One of the co-owners My Sweet Lil Cakes – a Seattle food truck that failed a June 15 inspection – said takes full responsibility for the inspection and has gotten his truck back up and running.
Jesse Lee said his truck is new, and he and his team are still learning. Lee said My Sweet Lil Cakes passed their first three inspections -- and Department of Health records back up his account.
Lee said immediately upon failing the inspection last week, he purchased new refrigeration equipment, fixed the hand washing sink, and paid the fine.
Lee invited KIRO 7 to see his operation up close look at his “uniquely Seattle food.” KIRO 7 plans to follow-up, and the King County Health Department says food trucks do not fail inspections with more or less frequency than traditional restaurants.
