A few employee mistakes cost a Chinese restaurant in Henry County a passing inspection score.
Sushi China Café, 1481 Hudson Bridge Road, Stockbridge, was marked down because employees were not washing their hands as frequently as they should while preparing food.
An employee was observed entering the back door then going to work handling equipment without first washing up. Another employee didn’t put on gloves before prepping some green onions.
In addition, the staff hand sink was filled with equipment and drinks, and one employee was using it to wash a cloth.
Sushi China Café was given a failing score of 66/U on the routine inspection.
Among other code violations cited, some temperatures of both hot and cold foods were not in the proper range to protect against bacteria growth. Among these items were boneless chicken, bean sprouts and coconut milk, all being kept in a refrigerated cooler.
Sushi China Café had previous scores in the high 80s, and is expected to be re-inspected next month. An employee said the recent inspection did not indicate a major problem with the restaurant.
“There was nothing wrong with the cleanliness or hygiene of the restaurant,” said employee Sri Boseman. “Normally if there is something very major they would ask us to close and get everything cleaned up or repaired. There was nothing major.”
Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
