A Peruvian sports bar in Norcross had its food permit suspended last week for failing its second consecutive routine health inspection, and not keeping potentially hazardous foods at safe temperatures.
Contigo Peru Sports Bar and Grill, 1241 Indian Trail Road, had been warned during two previous inspections about its food temperatures, the inspector said.
During this inspection, multiple items in the prep coolers were thrown away because temperatures were above the 41-degree limit. In addition, some soup left out on the stove was at 88 degrees and was also discarded.
The restaurant also had multiple items in the walk-in cooler that were not marked with preparation or disposal dates.
Contigo Peru scored a 68/U. It had a 33/U on its previous routine inspection in September.
The sports bar re-opened Friday afternoon after earning a follow-up score of 81/B, according to the restaurant’s manager.
Another recently featured restaurant, Dalia’s Grill, 6135 Peachtree Parkway, Norcross, also re-opened last week after earning a 94/A upon re-inspection.
In other food inspection news, the Fulton County Department of Health & Wellness will offer a Free Food Code briefing at the Georgia Restaurant Association on Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 2-4 p.m.
The briefing is for Fulton County restaurants only, and will focus on inspections and questions about the code. The GRA will be expanding the briefings to other metro counties in the future.
