One failure this week and it's in Cleveland. Chanchito's received a score of 55. This food truck was ordered to close, the Health Inspector wrote in the report that it was an "imminent health hazard". The inspector noticed the person in charge did not have food safety knowledge or health policy information. Sanitizing practices were not in use. Employees were seen washing dirty dishes, touching their faces, handling raw product and not washing their hands before working with food. Food was not at the correct temperature, not labeled, or it was stored on the floor. The door on the mobile unit was left open so flies were coming in. Wastewater was leaking out beneath the unit onto the ground.

In Chattanooga, one restaurant came pretty close to failing. Tacos El Cunao on  Lee Highway scored a 70. Remember a failing score is a 69.

Tacos El Cunao’s score came after inspectors noticed the kitchen staff was not properly trained on sanitation procedures like where to wash hands, and how to sanitize dishes. Health inspectors also say they found rodent droppings and roaches.  There was also not a hand-washing sink for employees in the bathroom and a leaky roof.

Thai Esan on Ringgold Road scored an 83. Inspectors found Tofu sitting out at room temperature. Food was also stored on floor in walk-in cooler.  Also, clean dishes stored on a dirty surface.

In Catoosa County,  If you’re staying at SpringHill Suites on General Lee Drive the continental breakfast could use a little work…the breakfast area scored a 72.  Reasons included cream cheese being stored out on a countertop at room temperature sausage patties were thawing at room temperature for use on the next day and Spoons, forks, and knives were stored in the area were customers were touching multiple food surfaces at one time contaminating the plastic wear.

In case you're wondering the hotel was inspected separately last month and earned a  95.
