This week, inspectors gave a 'failing' score to one restaurant in Chattanooga. The Hunan Wok I on East 23rd Street received a 55 in its latest inspection. The inspector noticed that the procedure wasn't being followed for preventing foodborne illness risk factors at the time of inspection. The cook was not properly washing hands, did not use soap and then dried hands on a personal apron.  Employees were using bare hands to handle ready to eat food.  Several food products including eggs were not from an approved source. There were dirty surfaces throughout the building. Food was uncovered or unprotected in the walk-in cooler and food debris was found on clean dishes. Trash containers were left open and personal items were stored in the food area. 

Melodee's Diner on Ringgold Road received an initial score of 80. But, in its follow up inspection, improved to a 94.
