Low score forces one restaurant to close its doors to address violations
We're less than a week from Thanksgiving and if you plan to take a break from the kitchen or if you are looking ahead for a quick holiday meal there are a few low scores you should know about.
In Fort Oglethorpe, inspectors gave a score so low the restaurant voluntarily closed to correct all violations. It's one of the lowest scores we've seen in the history of Restaurant Report Card.
Kobe Hibachi & Sushi scored a 31 which means the list of violations is long.
Inspectors found 32 violations during their visit, and noted them in their report. Among their findings were:
- Food safety training needed for all staff
- Employees were not washing hands between tasks
- Employee drinks stored over food preparation areas
- Employee food stored over throughout the entire facility, unlabeled
- Hand soap unavailable at the hand washing sink in kitchen
- Fish used for sushi not properly labeled as to type of fish (tilapia being presented and sold as either mackerel or red snapper on the menu)
- Observed multiple violations of cross-contamination of raw animal food stored above ready-to-eat foods
- Dirty knives, with food debris build-up, stored on magnetic strip
- Food items stored in walk-in cooler and dry storage not covered
- Food not stored with proper date labels
- Wet wiping towels stored on food prep surfaces
- Single use containers being reused to store food
- Heavy accumulation of food debris around cooktops at hibachi grill tables
- Extreme build-up of grease, food debris
- Extreme abundance of dead and live roaches all over the facility
Due to the amount of violations inspectors recommended more training for all staff members and as a result, this facility voluntarily closed and will remain closed until satisfactory corrections of all violations have been made.
In Hamilton County, the lowest scores were in the 70's; Home Slice Pizza on East 23 Street scored a 74, and Sticky Fingers on Broad Street scored a 77.
