MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - It's simple, guys. 

You change gloves, you wash your hands.

You wear gloves, you don't wipe your pants.

That's where things started to go bad for three Mid-South restaurants that failed their inspections this week.

Perkins Restaurant, 960 W. Poplar Ave. in Collierville, TN, failed its Oct. 29 health inspection with a 63:

"employee pulls up pants with gloves on hands and continues prepping food"

"food-handler changed gloves and did not wash hands"

"meat loaf, pot roast (at potentially hazardous food temps)"

"We are very disappointed in the recent health inspection at the Collierville restaurant," said Vivian Brooks, spokesperson for Perkins Restaurant & Bakery's corporate office. "Since being notified of the report, we have taken swift and corrective action and all problems cited have been rectified."

Collierville's Perkins Restaurant bumped up to an 86 on re-inspection Oct. 30.

Curry Bowl Indian Cuisine, 4101 Hacks Cross Rd., failed with a 64 on its Nov. 1 inspection:

"wall molded behind 3-compartment sink"

"back door outer opening unprotected (insect risk)"

"potentially hazardous food temps"

Health officials said they would re-inspect Curry Bowl Indian Cuisine within 10 days.

Los Comales Mexican Restaurant, 4774 Summer Ave., failed its Oct. 28 inspection, a 68:

"employee applying gloves without first washing hands"

"beef, pork in cold-holding (at potentially hazardous food temps)"

Los Comales' waitress Vanessa Ponce demonstrated how the staff has buckled down since the inspection. The cold-holding food temperatures were back in line during Action News 5's inspection. Staff members who had glove and hand-washing issues appeared to have them figured out.

"They're trying to do better by washing their hands every time they do something different, put on gloves, you know...hand sanitizer...for the better of our food health," Ponce said.

The Berclair Los Comales improved its score during a follow-up the same day:  an 83.
