Not so golden inspection report for one fast food joint
Additional food safety training can be expected in several establishments after the recent inspections.
This week, restaurants across North Georgia and Hamilton County did well, but one fast food spot's inspection was not golden.
In Fort Oglethorpe, the McDonald's on Battlefield Parkway came in with a 73. That's considered a fair score, remember a 69 or below is considered failing.
The report states the inspector observed the person in charge along with the certified food safety manager did not fulfill their responsibility to train staff, based on the risk factors found and were not effectively managing food safety conditions. The staff will be retrained on glove use, when to wash their hands along with how to avoid cross-contamination. The certified food safety manager did not demonstrate food safety knowledge and was retrained on site.
The inspector observed the employees not changing gloves and washing their hands after changing tasks, along with cross-contamination from raw to ready-to-eat foods. Inspector went through the hand washing procedure in detail. The report also states that there were multiple employees wearing dangling bracelets and watches. Employees can only wear a plain ring such as a wedding band. The inspector saw several wet sanitizing cloths that were not stored correctly.
