• Clayton County eatery must raise health inspection score


    JONESBORO, Ga. - Bass BBQ & Soul Food failed health inspection earlier this month and must now fix multiple violations before a re-inspection that could happen any day.

    The owner declined to be interviewed by Channel 2 Action News, but did say the eatery is addressing all violations.

    The Clayton County restaurant on Anvil Block Road in Jonesboro dropped 30 points to a 61. A passing health inspection grade is 70.

    "Rise it up a little bit because I'm in food service," said customer Abigail Cloud. "So 61 is degrading."

    Violations included no soap and/or paper towels in the hand sinks, potentially hazardous cold food stored at a temperature greater than 41 degrees and garbage around the dumpster.

    There were also adult flies in the dining area, kitchen and food prep area.

    Bass BBQ & Soul Food opened last September. Channel 2's Carol Sbarge reviewed its two previous health inspections and learned the absence of soap and paper towels was a repeat violation.

    Cloud said she doesn't usually pay attention to inspection scores.

    "Yes, because the report card tells it all," she said.
