A Norcross Vietnamese restaurant re-opened after having its food permit suspended last week following a second failing routine health inspection.
Yany Express, 5495 Jimmy Carter Boulevard, pulled its inspection score up to 100/A after first making a 44/U Jan. 2. During the routine inspection there were multiple repeat violations of compromised food safety, the inspector said.
Peeled vegetables were stored on newspaper that was spread on the floor. Several containers of food were left out uncovered. Butter, noodles and rice were discarded because they had been left out at room temperature.
All of these code violations had been noted on a previous inspection but were allowed to continue, the inspector said.
In addition, employees were careless with hygiene practices. They were not washing their hands before putting on gloves for food service. Some employees were putting on used gloves. And one employee touched prepared vegetables with bare hands.
Also, none of the employees working with food in the kitchen had on proper hair restraints, according to the inspector.
Yany Express was re-inspected Jan. 4, received a perfect score and its health permit was re-instated. The restaurant also had a failing health score in October, but pulled it up to a 100 on the follow-up inspection.
Management could not be reached for comment.
Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
