Dirty gloves stored as clean, cross contamination lead to restaurant failures

Posted: Updated:

Tough news this week for a couple of Hamilton County restaurants with two health inspection failures to report.

The lowest score in Hamilton County was a 63, found at Las Margaritas on Skyview Drive in Chattanooga. The restaurant lost points for storing food out of temperature and no date marking on food products. The inspector also watched an employee drop gloves on the floor, then put them back in the clean glove container to be used. An employee also used a piece of cardboard in food preparations.

Las Margaritas improved its score to a 94 on a second inspection.

The next failing grade is a 69, found at the Waffle House on Dayton Pike in Soddy Daisy. The inspector saw an employee handle raw beef and bacon and then handle ready-to-eat foods without washing their hands. They also found dirty cleaning cloths left on countertops.

Waffle House also improved its score to a 94 on a second inspection.
