Restaurant inspections, Duluth Korean

Employees at a Duluth Korean restaurant weren’t careful when handling eggs and other raw foods and it cost them a failing inspection score.

Nulbom Restaurant, 2550 Pleasant Hill Road, scored a 39 on its routine inspection after having recently posted scores in the 90s. The restaurant was marked down for cross contamination of bacteria when raw egg dripped from of an employee’s gloves onto some red leaf lettuce in the prep cooler.

Another employee did not change gloves between handling raw octopus and scooping green onions to garnish a customer’s food. The onions and lettuce were thrown away.

Megan Bowen, one of the managers at Nulbom, attributed the low inspection score to new employees who did not know all of the health procedures. She said they were training the staff now in anticipation of a follow-up inspection this week.

Employees did not record the temperatures of food, or document how long they had been left out to cool. Refrigerated foods were not labeled with preparation dates. Several buckets of beef bone soup had been held in the refrigerator for more than 72 hours but were not marked.

The restaurant, which serves multiple dishes with eggs cooked to the customer’s request, did not provide an advisory warning of the risk of food borne illness from undercooked animal foods. Nulbom was told to stop serving raw or undercooked eggs without the advisory.

Other code violations included: improperly thawing of meat, weak sanitizer for cleaning the counters and tables, and bowls of kimchi left uncovered on the front counter.
