Two Chattanooga restaurants cited for dirty surfaces, lack of food safety knowledge

Two Chattanooga restaurants cited for dirty surfaces, lack of food safety knowledge

February 20th, 2019 by Staff Report in Breaking News

Two Chattanooga restaurants have been dinged for multiple reasons including dirty surfaces and lack of food safety knowledge.

Tai Chi Bubble Tea, located on Gunbarrel Road, received a score of 76 after a recent health inspection found dirty food and non-food contact surfaces, improperly supplied and inaccessible handwashing sinks and improper date marking. The person in charge didn't show food safety knowledge.

The second restaurant, Domino's Pizza on Hixson Pike, also had a person in charge without food safety knowledge and dirty food and non-food contact surfaces. A health inspector also found improper cold temperatures and chemicals that weren't labeled.

The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Health Department inspects restaurants twice a year and grades the businesses on a 100-point scale. Scores below 70 require corrective action.

Restaurants are reinspected if they fail to meet critical standards. To file a health-related complaint, call the Department of Environmental Health at 209-8110. The scores are original and do not reflect on-the-spot changes, which sometimes lead to upward adjustments.
