Oyster restaurant tanks health inspection

Posted: Updated:

A seafood restaurant in Dalton tanked its restaurant inspection this week. 

The Oyster at 933 Market Street, Suite 12 in Dalton earned a 67. A failing grade is anything below a 70.

The inspector noted two boxes of oysters did not contain tags and were not accepted with them. They were thrown away immediately. Restaurants are required to accept only oyster shipments with tags and must keep the tags for 90 days.

Raw meats and ready-to-eat foods were mixed up in the reach-in cooler and raw meats were stored above ready-to-eat foods, which increases the risk of cross contamination. The prep coolers were too warm, along with their contents, including cheese, sour cream and pork.

Most restaurants in Hamilton County fared well. The lowest score was an 80, found at China Cafeteria at 511 Market Street. The inspector saw employees thawing chicken incorrectly, found cutting boards in bad repair and food debris build up on the hibachi grill. The restaurant also lost points because boxes covered the ground in the dumpster area and the doors to the kitchen and restroom were dirty. China Cafeteria corrected its score to a 94 on a second inspection.

Several restaurants earned a perfect score of 100. Congratulations to:
