Restaurant inspections, Bon Ga Korean

Gwinnett County suspended the health permit of a Korean restaurant on Buford Highway last week after it failed a second routine health inspection in the past three months.

Bon Ga Korean Restaurant, 7130 Buford Highway, Doraville, was given a health score of 43/U. Management was asked to close the facility and submit a plan to control risks of food-borne illness.

The restaurant has had repeated violations of improper cooling of cooked foods. Rapid cooling methods that ensure food safety are not being followed, according to the inspector.

For example, four containers of bone soup had been placed inside 5-gallon plastic containers to cool at room temperature. Three containers of the soup were discarded after not cooling to the required maximum of 70 degrees within 2 hours. One container was re-heated on the stove and held for customers.

Other hot foods had been placed in the walk-in cooler to lower the temperatures, but approved cooling standards were not met.

In other violations, an employee used bare hands to prep cooked cabbage. The food was discarded. Date marks were missing on cooked beef, lung and barbecue ribs being stored in the refrigerator.

Food items in the walk-in cooler and freezer had to be rearranged. Raw beef was stored above onions, cabbage, limes and kiwi in the cooler, and raw seafood and raw pork were stored above cooked beef in the freezer.

Bon Ga will be re-inspected and its food permit reinstated with a passing score. Restaurant management could not be reached for comment.

In other news, a recently featured restaurant, China Queen, 500 Ballard Place, Palmetto, scored a 94/A on a follow-up inspection.
