Restaurant inspections, La Hacienda

A Fayette County Mexican restaurant saw its health score drop after stored food items were left uncovered, including ice, salt and fruit used in margaritas and other bar drinks.

La Hacienda, 2755 Highway 54 W., Peachtree City, was given a failing score of 68, after previously scoring consecutive health ratings of 91/A.

During the routine inspection Aug. 17 the restaurant had a repeat violation of a code requiring food not actively in use to be kept covered to prevent bacteria contamination. In addition to the bar items, some salsa was uncovered in an under-counter cooler, and beans and raw chicken were uncovered in a walk-in cooler.

Points were also deducted because raw chicken was thawing improperly in a sink filled with water. Additional cleaning was needed on a few non-food surfaces, as well as for the ice maker and can opener. A few repairs in the restaurant were also needed, and some old lids, plates and spatulas were damaged and needed replacing, according to the inspection report.

Manager Raphael Duran said the repairs and cleaning were now completed and the staff anticipated a follow-up inspection within three weeks.

In other inspections, Bay Breeze Seafood Restaurant, 2418 Canton Road, Marietta, was reported as having a current score of 72/C by Cobb and Douglas Public Health.

However, the restaurant has been re-inspected and now has a 95/A.
