Several North Georgia restaurants need to pay closer attention pest control and to storage temperatures for hot and cold foods, according to health department inspectors. Another Chattanooga eatery had evidence of insects/rodents.

The low score of the week was an 80 at the Brass Lantern 3042 Hwy. 76 in Chatsworth, GA. There, inspectors found multiple, raw food items stored improperly, meatloaf being stored at improper temperatures, as well as other cold items (also out of safe holding temperature range) that were later discarded.

The Waffle King at 503 G.I. Madox Pkwy. also in Chatsworth, GA, earned a score of 81, where inspectors saw several flies and roaches during the inspection. They also noticed several hot foods being stored at below-safe temperatures, and cold foods that were held above the required 41-degree limit.

Additionally, inspectors noted that there was no person in charge during the inspection with knowledge about temperature control/reheating procedures. They had to call the person in charge to be there during the inspection.

The Subway at 4257 Cloud Springs Road earned a score of 83 for food being held at incorrect hot and cold temperatures, no trash can next to hand sink and employee items that were stored in incorrect places.

Another score of 83 was given to Merv's at 33 Legion Street for bacon being cooled improperly, food being held at incorrect hot and cold temperatures and grease accumulation on floors

At Taqueria Jalisco, 850 Market Street in Chattanooga, a score of 85 was given for signs of insects/rodents present, management/employee awareness of foodborne illness risks not present and contamination of food not prevented during prep/storage.
