Raw seafood causes problems for a buffet this week

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

In Hamilton County, inspectors reported a series of good scores this week.

But at one Chinese buffet, inspectors found raw oysters being stored over watermelon, kitchen staff handling raw shrimp and scooping ice from ice machine without washing hands.

The China Moon at 5600 Brainerd Road scored a 76, with other factors being no employee with adequate food safety knowledge, the prep room floor soiled, thawing imitation crab meat on prep table and staff taking out trash and not washing hands afterward.

At Universal Joint on  532 Lookout Street, they scored an 84. The reasons include improper cooling methods, poor ventilation, and garbage not properly disposed.

LaFiesta Mexican Grill at 8523 Hixson Pike also scored an 84; reasons including several dirty surfaces in kitchen, wet containers stacked, wall and floor damaged in kitchen, improper date marking. This was corrected to 93.

In Whitfield County, Taqueria El Rey scored a 79. Remember that's still considered a fair score, but it does require re-inspection within 90 days. They had some issues with food safety. The inspector found raw eggs stored over tomatoes and raw bacon in the same container with hot dogs. They also had some cooked meat that was being held at high enough temperatures, plus there was an issue with their sink.
