Restaurant inspections, Mango’s Latin Grill

Mango’s Latin Grill in Lawrenceville had its food permit suspended after failing a second routine health inspection.

The Venezuelan restaurant, 3870 Lawrenceville Highway, received a 54/U on Jan. 29 and had to close that afternoon. But they were back in business the following day after satisfying some health code requirements.

Manager Gustavo Parro said the restaurant had a recent ownership change and no one was in charge when the inspector arrived. “It was basically chaos, but everything’s fine now,” he said.

Points were deducted for repeat violations of food storage separation in the coolers and freezers. A Gwinnett County inspector said raw beef, chicken, pork and seafood were all stored in the wrong places, mostly above vegetables, soups or other cooked dishes, creating a risk for bacteria cross contamination.

In addition, expiration dates were missing from some leftovers. Beef soup and vegetable soup were discarded because there were no date markings on the containers.

Other foods were held past their expiration dates. Cooked chicken, cheese patties and cooked plantains were all thrown away. The plantains had been held for 25 days. Prepared foods can be kept for only seven days.

In other code violations, an employee didn’t wash his hands between preparing raw chicken and handling clean dishes.

Mango’s will be re-inspected. The restaurant had previous health scores of 89/B and 58/U.
