Thai restaurant lands on naughty list with failing grade

Posted: Updated:

Almost all of this week's restaurants landed on Santa's nice list with only one failure.

Thai Garden at 685 Battlefield Parkway in Fort Oglethorpe scored a 62. The inspector saw an employee place raw beef in a bowl, then set it on the floor and slide it under a cold heating unit. The inspector intervened and the meat was thrown away immediately. She also found food thawed incorrectly, employee drinks left in the kitchen area, food stored without date marking, foods prepared in a private home that were then cooked in the restaurant, which could cross-contaminated food served to customers, a utensil stored in water at 75 degrees, and a non-approved residential refrigerator in use because the restaurant's cooler was in disrepair.

Hamilton County didn't have any failures this week. The lowest score was an 82, found at Mrs. B's Reggae Cafe at 3103 S. Broad Street in Chattanooga. The inspector saw employees handling ready-to-eat food with their bare hands and found dirty food preparation surfaces and food stored at incorrect temperatures.
