Question Honeycombing in foundation

Foundation poured several weeks ago by builder. Noticed a few spots with honeycombing (see links to photos). Wanted to get other opinions if it is of concerned and what is the best way to fix.

Thanks for any help.

If the concrete work pictured is any indication of your "builder's" capabilities, I wonder what he will screw up on the rest of your house.

No doubt that's his normal level of quality. I wouldn't pay for it if it was my house.

Best way to fix?
There is no "fixing" that mess.
He needs to go, and all of his work cut out and redone by someone that knows what there doing.

I agree with Joecaption and Bridgeman. The quality of work is terrible. I would get a lawyer now and begin preparations for suing him if he doesn't fix it.

Where's the footings for that block wall?
In you area I'd guess it should have been 4' below grade.
