Gwinnett County health officials have suspended the food permit of Nanoom To Go for the second time this year.
The restaurant at 3312 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Duluth, has yet to celebrate its first anniversary, but has had problems passing a routine health inspection. Last week, it failed yet another routine inspection with a 51/U and was required to close its doors and come up with an action plan to correct all risk control violations.
During the inspection, the inspector found several frozen meats and seafood thawing improperly throughout the facility.
For example, raw squid was thawing in standing water in the produce sink, while Napa cabbage was on an adjacent drain board. The squid was moved to the cooler to continue thawing.
Raw pork products were thawing at room temperature on the prep table and on the meat slicer. Raw fish was thawing on top of a chest freezer.
Nanoom To Go has had repeat violations of not protecting food from cross-contamination in storage. Several items in the coolers and freezer were stored improperly, and some containers were uncovered.
Also, multiple pots and other containers of food were left on the floor around the produce sink. Uncooked beans were in a pot of water. Some rice was also soaking in a pot of water on the floor.
In other violations, there were no date marks on prepared foods in the cooler and freezer.
Nanoom To Go last scored a 49/U on a routine inspection in February and lost its food permit. It was restored a week later when the restaurant scored an 82/B upon re-inspection.
The restaurant will be re-inspected in the next two weeks. Management could not be reached for comment.
Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
