Restaurant inspections, The Flying Biscuit Cafe

Problems with two coolers caused the health score to drop below passing at The Flying Biscuit Cafe in Candler Park.

One of the prep coolers wasn’t working properly during the routine inspection and some food had to be thrown away because the temperatures were too high.

Some butter that had been left out on a counter was also tossed out because the temperatures hovered around 70 degrees.

At the grill cooler, several items weren’t stored correctly which created a risk of food contamination.

A prepared onion relish mixture was stored in containers with raw fish, according to the DeKalb County inspection report. The relish is supposed to be placed on the fish after it’s cooked. In addition, cooked meatloaf was placed between raw steak and a raw beef patty.

The Flying Biscuit Cafe, 1655 McLendon Ave., Atlanta, scored a 52/U. Previous scores were 73/C and 84/B.

Among other code violations, employees did not remove their gloves and wash their hands after picking up items that fell onto the floor. The staff kept uncovered personal drinks in the kitchen area, and personal items stored among service items.

Two bulk boxes of turkey bacon were stored on the floor in the walk-in cooler, and bulk containers of flour used to make biscuits were stored on the floor in the bakery area. All food containers must be at least six inches off the floor.

Restaurant manager Brian Amos said he was looking forward to having the restaurant re-inspected. “Everything is on the mend and we should do fine,” he said.

In other news, Waraku Japanese Restaurant, 3131 Lawrenceville Suwanee Road, Suwanee, received an 89/B on a follow-up inspection.
