Local McDonalds barely passes after roaches found in kitchen
By WRCB Staff
One fast-food restaurant barely passed its health inspection this week. Hamilton County Health Department inspectors found roaches in the kitchen, employees not washing hands after handling raw frozen beef and chicken, then handling utensils and touching surfaces around the kitchen.
The McDonald's at 104 Sequoyah Access Road scored a 70, just one point away from failure. Also cited in the report were excessive flies in kitchen, inside of coolers dirty, a dirty rag left on food prep counter, cigarette butts on the floor in outdoor storage shed and an ice bucket stored on the floor.
On the follow-up inspection, they were able to improve to an 89.
