Restaurant inspections, China Queen

Fulton County health inspectors shut down a Chinese restaurant in Palmetto last week so management could correct multiple code violations and re-train their staff.

China Queen, 500 Ballard Place, was given failing scores on consecutive inspections: a 54/U last Monday, and and a 55/U on a follow-up inspection the next day.

The inspector found chicken wings stored on a counter, uncovered and subject to contamination. Frozen chicken breasts were being thawed improperly in a sink with warm water.

Prepared foods had no date markings. Food containers were not properly labeled. Raw meats were stored on top of sauces and other prepared foods in the cooler.

The restaurant was using food from dented cans. Food was stored in open dented cans in the cooler, and other dented cans were on shelves throughout the kitchen, the inspector said.

Employees kept personal water bottles in the food prep areas. And a sleeping area had been set up inside the kitchen near a storage rack.

Cardboard was being used the line shelves. The cooler was dirty with food debris. The floors underneath the cooking equipment also needed cleaning.

An employee with China Queen said the restaurant was closed for repairs. It will have to correct all violations and pass a re-inspection before re-opening, according to the inspector.

In other news, Babalu Cuban Joint, 802 Dacula Road, Dacula, re-opened under new management after scoring a 100/A on a follow-up inspection.
