Restaurant inspections, Best Wings

Employees at Best Wings, 2522 Cruse Road, Lawrenceville, were lax about washing their hands and wearing gloves when preparing food, and that cost the restaurant a passing health score.

Best Wings scored a 39/U on the routine inspection. The Gwinnett County health inspector said the manager didn’t have control over food safety, and employees weren’t trained in proper hand washing.

For example, one employee came out of the bathroom and immediately started working with clean utensils without washing her hands, the inspector said. Two employees were bare-handed while cutting celery for customers. Another employee handled raw beef for Philly sandwiches, then touched some bread without first changing gloves.

Other employees also failed to wash their hands before putting on gloves, or between glove changes.

The contaminated foods were discarded, and the clean utensils were re-washed.

In other code violations, managers used improper thawing and reheating methods which can compromise food safety, the inspector said.

Ten bags of French fries were thawing on a counter and had gotten too warm. The manager returned them to the cooler.

Rice was thrown away because it had been reheating in a warmer for 2 ½ hours and was still not at an acceptable temperature.

The facility also needed a thorough cleaning, the inspector said.

Best Wings will be re-inspected. Previous scores were 82/B and 88/B. Management could not be reached for comment.
