Black mold-like substance found on drink nozzles gives one restaurant a score of 56
If you're thinking about eating out this weekend, health inspectors say one restaurant could use a lesson in basic food safety training.
The O'Charley's in Fort Oglethorpe scored a 56. Violations include food in walk-in coolers not being covered up correctly, drink nozzles that had black mold-like substance on them and inspectors noticed dried food debris buildup on top of microwaves.
There, inspectors also saw a single utensil being used to cook different raw animal foods with different cook temperatures, "clean" dishes they were not clean to sight or touch, raw seafood (stuffed crab) being cooked to a temperature less than 155 degrees Fahrenheit and sanitizer solutions being stored over and in contact with food products.
In Walker County, the lowest score was McDonald's on North Main Street scored with an 84. Violations included liquid eggs being stored on prep counter, boxes of beef stored on the floor in walk-in cooler, and buckets of sanitizer not being stored correctly making it not effective.
There were not any major violations in Hamilton County.
Remember if you have a complaint about a restaurant, pool, daycare or gym... contact your local health department.
