HENRY COUNTY, Ga. - A fast-food restaurant in Henry County received an unsatisfactory score on a health inspection last month.
The McDonald's on Bill Gardner Parkway scored 63 out of 100 during the May 22 inspection. It has yet to be reinspected, but the owner said he has already fixed the problems.
Violations included employees not washing hands when appropriate in between tasks, potentially hazardous foods not meeting temperature requirements, and build-ups of food and grease on kitchen items, such as the underside of an orange juice machine, fry station, electrical outlets and plugs.
Owner Mark Mines declined an on-camera interview but sent Channel 2’s Carol Sbarge a statement saying, “Customers are our No. 1 priority. We were informed of an issue in our store and addressed it immediately to satisfaction. Our safety specifications and those of our suppliers meet and often exceed the recommendations and requirements of America's food and safety agencies. We look forward to continuing to provide safe and wholesome food choices for our customers."
The restaurant previously scored 87 out of 100 during a March 15 inspection.
Health inspectors are expected to reinspect the restaurant sometime soon.
