Although there were no failures this week, two Chattanooga area restaurants received low marks after a Chattanooga-Hamilton County Health Department inspection.

Ayala's at 1832 Taft Highway scored an 84 after an inspection found raw meat stored above ready-to-eat food in the cooler, mildew growth on the inside of the ice machine and an unclean reach-in cooler. The eatery was also cited because an employee's lidless cup was found next to food being prepared, risking contamination, and cut limes and cut avocado were stored on wire shelves in a reach-in cooler when they need to be stored in clean containers.

Dunkin' Donuts at 6408-A Ringgold Road was given a score of 86 after an inspection discovered employees not washing hands as needed and donning on gloves before preparing food items and dirty food and non-food contact surfaces in food preparation and service areas.

Only one restaurant received a perfect score.
