No failures to report this week but there are several places that need some improvements with their safe food handling techniques.

In Hamilton County, the Subway at 2525 Desales Avenue received an 80. The inspector noted that the staff was not familiar with why food in the reach-in cooler is 65 degrees. The sink by the triple sink was left blocked by a cart. The sanitizer water in triple sink water was soiled. Cases of chips left directly on the floor.

The Mi Casita on 3029 Rossville Blvd received an 81. The inspector noticed the person in charge did not have sufficient food safety knowledge. The freezer was out of order, so they had to get rid of all perishable foods in the freezer. Baked beans were holding at 51*F and were prepared the day before. A low-boy unit was holding foods at 51-55*F. Three pounds of raw beef was thrown out. There was no date marking on any prepared foods that are held overnight in facility. Multiple prepared foods were left uncovered in a lowboy unit and reach-in cooler. Excessive grime build-up was found on the carpet at the kitchen entrance.

In Catoosa County, the Golden Corral at 760 Battlefield Parkway received an 80. The inspector saw employees wearing gloves while conducting multiple tasks (sanitizing surfaces, opening equipment doors, setting cook timers, and handling prepped food containers) without removing soiled gloves, washing hands, and donning new gloves prior to handling containers of prepped food and restocking serving line. Foods that had been prepped at room temperature earlier in the morning were cooling with tight-fitting lids. Several wet wiping towels were left out on food prep counters rather than inside buckets of sanitizer solution.

The Garden Grille & Bar in Whitfield County received an 80 on their inspection. There was no Certified Food Protection Manager and no proof of one on staff. Certification must be displayed. The dish machine at the bar was not sanitizing dishes. Food was not being kept at the proper temperature on the breakfast bar. No chlorine test strips were found for the bar dish machine.

The Super 8 at 911 Market Street in Dalton received an 88. Food was not being kept at proper temperatures. Also, the staff was not keeping adequate records when using time. There was no handwashing sign in the employee restroom. There wasn't a choking poster in the breakfast area.

Cold Point Ice Cream on 1273 N. Glenwood Avenue in Dalton was given an 88, with food not at proper temperatures. Cloths were left on the counters, not in sanitizing bucket.
