Restaurant inspections, Grand Buffet

A Chinese restaurant in Duluth saw its inspection score drop recently because the staff did not document how long food had been left out on the buffet service.

Grand Buffet, 1825 Liddell Lane, Duluth, received a 51/U on the Nov. 6 routine inspection.

The inspector noted that time control procedures were not being followed because food items on the serving line were not marked with start and discard times. The amount of time food can be left out without temperature controls must be documented, according to the inspector.

Among other violations, live bugs were discovered in a bulk container of flour. The inspector had the flour discarded.

Raw fish was being thawed improperly in standing water instead of the approved method of placing it under lukewarm running water.

Employees were not washing their hands as frequently as required. At the time of the inspection, an employee washing dirty dishes was also handling clean dishes while wearing the same gloves. The employee should change gloves and wash hands before touching clean dishes, the inspector said.

Employees were also using the vegetable sink to rinse dirty dishes instead of the three-compartment sink designed to rinse, wash and sanitize them.

An employee at Grand Buffet said another inspection is forthcoming in the next two weeks, and the staff expects the score “to be back to normal.” Previous scores were 85/B and 83/B.
