CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. - A busy Morrow restaurant has received one of the lowest health inspection scores seen in recent county records.
Channel 2's Carol Sbarge found an inspection report for Grand Buffet in Clayton County showing a score of 41.
In March, the restaurant received a score of 90.
In the most recent inspection, an official found nearly two dozen violations, including observing a food employee touch a bare body part then engage in food preparation without washing hands; observing foods on hot holding buffet below the required 135 degrees; observing raw chicken improperly thawing on the counter; and food contact surfaces and utensils not sanitized properly after cleaning.
Restaurant manager Lou Zou told Sbarge that workers have been retrained.
“Just clean the hands, use gloves,” said Zou. “If you’re going out, you need to clean the hands.”
Zou said workers are being told to store food correctly so there is no cross-contamination. He also said there is an emphasis on cleanliness.
“Well, we clean everything,” Zou said.
The Grand Buffet will be re-inspected within the next week.
