Three Way Wings in Atlanta learned the hard way to make sure that equipment is plugged in. The freezer wasn’t, and wing temperatures soared to 64 degrees and had to be tossed.
That was one of many health code violations resulting in an inspection score of 49/U for the take-out eatery at 830 McDonough Boulevard.
Fulton County’s health inspector said management needed retraining on foodborne illness risk control as well as good retail practices.
For example, the manager in charge was eating while frying chicken wings for customers. He also switched from taking orders to preparing the food without first washing his hands, the inspector said.
The equipment and facility needed repairs and cleaning. The freezer’s rear door was held together with tape. There was a build-up of black slime on the soda dispensing nozzles. Cardboard cutouts were used as container lids. Cardboard was even used as a toilet bowl lid.
In other violations, raw chicken was stored over vegetables and cooked rice in the cooler. And the rice was not marked with a date of preparation or disposal.
Three Way Wings will have a follow-up inspection within the next two weeks. Previous scores were 80/B and 88/B. Restaurant management could not be reached for comment.
Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
