Ground beef juice dripping on floor causes restaurant to fail twice

Ground beef juice dripping on floor causes restaurant to fail twice

August 24th, 2017 by Kimberly Sebring in Local Regional News

One Georgia restaurant failed not once - but twice - as the health inspector found a refrigerator floor covered in raw ground beef juice and tobacco products stored on the food prep area, among other citations.

A failing score is considered any score below a 70.

Brainerd Motorsports Park on Scruggs Road failed the first time with a score of 47 before failing again with a score just 14 points higher.

The health inspector found raw meat being prepared on the same table as ready-to-eat food without sanitizing between uses and raw meat being stored with ready-to-eat food.

Herman's Soul Food on Brainerd Road was 14 points away from failing with a score of 84, as the restaurant was cited for storing onions on the floor, not rodent-proofing a screen door, storing cleaning supplies improperly and having incorrect cooling temperatures. The score was then corrected to a 94.

Full Moon Burger & Bar was given a higher score of 87 but was cited for dirty rags on countertops, a manager eating at a food prep table in the kitchen and storing window cleaning chemicals on a shelf above food. The score was later corrected to a 97.

Seven restaurants earned a perfect score this week:

  • 100 Jimmy Johns 7407 Igou Gap Road
  • 100 Greg's Sandwhich Shop 6337 East Brainerd Road
  • 100 Planet Smoothie 1414 Jenkins Road
