Restaurant inspections, Tommy’s Sandwich Shop

Tommy’s Sandwich Shop, a longtime deli on the Marietta square, had some cleaning to do after a routine inspection resulted in a failing health score.

The deli at 148 Roswell Street was given a 57/U because there was no certified safety manager on site, some of the food was not protected from contamination and the equipment needed cleaning.

The Cobb and Douglas environmental health inspector found a package of unopened deli meat sitting in bloody water with a foul odor. It was discarded. A container of pre-packaged chili had been opened and placed in a container that wasn’t clean. It still had chili debris from the day before. This was also discarded.

Points were taken off because the equipment was not properly cleaned. The ice machine had rust. The bottom of the reach-in cooler had a layer of food particles, and moist debris from deli meat. The meat slicer also had food debris build-up. The soda nozzles needed cleaning. And food cans were covered with rusty lids.

During the inspection, the slicer was taken apart and cleaned, the soda nozzles were wiped down and the can lids were thrown away.

In other code violations, some prepared vegetable soup was not being held at the proper temperature to prevent contamination. Some open packages of deli meats were not dated.

Tommy’s was expecting another health inspection within two weeks. The sandwich shop had previous health scores of 96/A and 79/C. Management was unavailable for comment.

A recently featured restaurant restored its health score on a recent follow-up inspection. Mango’s Latin Grill, 3870 Lawrenceville Highway, Lawrenceville, received a 92/A.
