A Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins in Lilburn was forced to close briefly last week after receiving its second failing inspection score since late July.
The coffee and ice cream shop at 3935 Highway 29 was marked down Oct. 4 for repeat violations of health codes, including not having a certified food safety manager on staff.
Employees were still not washing their hands as frequently as they should to prevent bacteria contamination, and the employee hand sink had no soap or paper towels. The inspector observed one employee handling money, then putting on gloves to slice a bagel without first washing their hands.
The prep cooler was still not working correctly and some cheese, chicken and butter had to be thrown away because the temperatures were too high.
The ice machine still had mold-like substance throughout. The coffee bean grinders and some of the other equipment were not clean either, according to the inspection report.
And in a new violation, the inspector found a motor vehicle parked inside the kitchen, and a visor and pair of gloves stored on a container of bagels.
Dunkin Donuts was given a failing score of 56 and asked to close early that evening. The restaurant was re-inspected the following day, received a 99/A and allowed to re-open that afternoon.
An assistant manager at Dunkin Donuts said the restaurant has received certification for its food safety manager.
Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
