Handling salad with bare hands, flies in kitchen result in two restaurant failures

Posted: Updated:

Bad news for both Chattanooga and north Georgia this week with two restaurant failures.

We begin in Chattanooga, where Pure Vida on River Street scored a 69. A score of 69 or lower is a failing grade. The inspector saw an employee prepare fresh, ready-to-eat salad with their bare hands, found rotten celery in the freezer, boxes of bananas stored on the floor and unlabeled or dated food. The restaurant corrected the issues and scored a 94 on a follow-up inspection.

In north Georgia, the Krystal on Alabama Highway in Ringgold scored a 63. The inspector found both hot and cold foods kept out of safe temperature ranges, open employee drinks in the kitchen area, dirty coke and tea nozzles, and an “excessive number” of flies and gnats in the kitchen and restaurant. The restaurant improved its score to 91.

Several restaurants across the area earned perfect scores.
