Restaurant inspections, Los Tortas Ahogadas Jalisco #2

Los Tortas Ahogadas Jalisco #2 has had its east Atlanta location open for about three months, but there are still kinks to work out with food safety issues.

A Fulton County health inspector said the person in charge needed more training in controlling risk factors in the restaurant. Employees weren’t washing their hands when switching from handling raw foods to ready-to-eat foods. The cook was observed preparing sandwich wraps without wearing gloves. There were no paper towels at the hand sink.

Los Tortas, 1645 Moreland Avenue, was given a failing score of 43/U on its first routine inspection.

Among other code violations, foods were not separated properly in storage or preparation. Raw chicken was above tomatoes and cooked rice, and raw ground beef was stored above cooked breaded chicken.

Food was uncovered inside the coolers and on the cook line. Equipment, counters and utensils were not sanitized. Prepared food was not marked with a dates of preparation or disposal. There was no thermometer to measure cold foods on the cook line.

Los Tortas will have 10 days to correct the code violations before being re-inspected. Management could not be reached for comment.

In other news, Gwinnett County health department has still not re-instated the food permit of Enos Pizza, 3070 Highway 78, Snellville. Cockroaches remain a problem and the facility is not clean, the inspector said. Enos has been re-inspected at least three times since losing its permit May 21 due to pest infestation and inadequate refrigeration.
