Sushi Joy eatery, located inside the Korean superstore Mega Mart in Duluth, faced a list of new violations during a recent food inspection.
Most of the citations were corrected at the time of the inspection, but they still resulted in an unsatisfactory grade of 59 (U), which was well below the 99 (A) it received about a month ago.
Violations related to raw fish included the absence of a parasite destruction letter for the fish that is served raw and the person in charge not being aware of answers to food safety questions. The inspector also observed an employee handling ready-to-eat food with bare hands and employee drinking out of an open glass, the report said. Workers’ drink cups must have a lid and straw, the inspector wrote.
Other violations include improper temperatures in the cooler display, an insufficient time control plan and inadequate sanitizing solution in the dish machine. The manager was not available for comment.
The inspector advised that the restaurant must have the most recent inspection report posted where customers can come as close as 1 foot from it to read it.
The eatery was also advised that it must “put labels on the sushi containers with the name of the sushi dish,” according to the report.
Here are other recent inspection scores from restaurants across the area.
