Restaurant inspections, Cho Won Buffet

Cho Won Buffet, a Duluth Korean restaurant at 3635 Satellite Boulevard, saw its perfect health score drop to a 45/U during a recent routine inspection because of poor hand-washing practices by the staff and other risks of bacteria contamination.

The Gwinnett County health inspector said the restaurant’s food safety manager was not providing the proper employee training or supervision on health procedures.

One employee handled a trash can, then went to the grill to remove some egg pancakes without removing gloves or washing hands.

An employee switched from handling dirty dishes to clean dishes without washing hands. Another employee did not use gloves when chopping raw vegetables and crab meat for the buffet.

Also, the proper hand-washing method that ensures cleanliness wasn’t being followed by employees, the inspector noted.

In other violations, cartons and bowls of raw eggs and some white rice, which had been removed from the cooler and left in the prep area to be prepared at a later time, were not cold enough. The food was returned to the cooler until needed.

Both hot and cold food on the buffet were labeled with a discard time that exceeded the limit of four hours, according to the inspector.

Cho Won Buffet manager was unavailable for comment. The restaurant, which had previous scores of 100/A and 96/A, will be reinspected in the next two weeks.
