Restaurant inspections, Union City Cafe

A series of little mistakes cost a Union City café its stellar food service score.

Corner Café, 6810 Shannon Parkway, was given a failing score of 63 following a routine inspection Aug. 16 because a few health violations carried risk factors for food borne illness. The restaurant was instructed to make corrections before being re-inspected.

Among the findings, sliced celery and carrots were stored in water in an uncovered container under the prep table, and subject to contamination, according to the report. Other food-contact surfaces were not cleaned after being contaminated.

In addition, thermometers were missing from a reach-in cooler, temperatures were too low on some cooked rice and containers of leftovers weren’t properly marked with disposal dates.

Points were also taken off because employees had personal items in the food prep area, such as cell phones, keys and an open water bottle.

An employee with Corner Café said the restaurant would be re-inspected this week but was unaware of any special preparations to be made beforehand. The score was caused by “just a few little things,” she said.

Corner Café had a previous score of 95/A.

In other news, Fulton County inspectors recently swept through Turner Field with routine visits to more than 3 dozen concessions inside The Ted. The scores? All A’s, ranging from 93 to 100.
