Yogi’s Ultimate Wings, which was located at 5022 Roosevelt Highway Suite B in Union City, closed without notifying the Environmental Health Services offices in Fulton County, according to health services officials.
The closure came not long after an inspection process that included routine, intervention and follow-up exams.
Yogi’s received a 49 (U) on its routine exam, facing a host infractions such as mold-like growth on vegetables, substandard date-marking procedures and issues with sanitizing the facility, according to the report. It was also cited for outer openings in the back door – a violation that’s listed under the pest and animal control category.
The inspector also advised that Yogi’s “must correct all foodborne illness risk factors. … Must have passing score upon re-inspection.” Repeated calls after the routine inspection yielded no response from the manager about procedures for maintaining higher food safety levels.
An intervention visit was performed, and Yogi’s score was pulled up to a 99 (A). More calls to the restaurant went unanswered. Meanwhile, a visit to the restaurant revealed it was closed or had moved.
The health services officials wrote in an email: “On April 23, 2012, an Environmental Specialist attempted to visit the facility and discovered it was out of business. … The owner should have notified EHS of his closure, but he did not.”
Here are more recent restaurant inspections scores from across the metro area.
