Workers not changing gloves, wiping face while preparing food

Posted: Updated:

This week, Channel 3's Restauarant Report Card reports no failures! Thirteen eateries in the Tennessee Valley earned a perfect score of 100.

While that's always a good thing, there are a small handful of restaurants where safe food handling techniques and preparation will need attention by owners and managers.

The La Fiesta Mexican Grill on Hixson Pike scored an 84. There, the inspector observed a server wiping their face and not washing their hands afterward. Another employee was seen cooking, then touching their face and other dirty services while handling food. They were wearing gloves.

There were a few other minor violations -- the dishwashing machine itself was leaking water, the containers holding food were cracked, water was pooling on the kitchen floor, and wet containers were stacked. Some foods were also not held at the correct temperature.

The Krystal on Ringgold Road in East Ridge scored an 82. Inspectors found adequate demonstration of knowledge not provided regarding food safety, and the manager on duty not aware of employee illness policy at time of inspection. Additionally, no paper towels were provided at hand sink.

The Krystal at 2560 LaFayette Road in Catoosa Co. scored at 74. Reasons including ice machine not clean to sight or touch, opened/prepared container of packaged ready to eat food products being used that were not safe/out of date (was immediate discarded), potentially hazardous food being held at incorrect temperatures.
