Restaurant inspections, Nanoom To Go

A new restaurant in Stockbridge, still working through staffing and training, failed a recent health inspection because of repeat food safety violations.

Blake’s Eatery, 901 Rock Quarry Road, earned a 65/U on the same day a new manager arrived. The Henry County inspector said employees were making some of the same mistakes on this inspection as they did on the previous one. The restaurant opened in April.

Points were taken off for repeat hand washing violations. Employees were not washing their hands between task changes. One worker handled a raw shell then proceeded to handle clean equipment, and another touched money then grabbed food and drinks in a walk-in cooler.

The restaurant was flagged a second time for not marking ready to eat potentially hazardous foods with discard dates. Potato salad, pork and beans and cooked pork were more than a day old but the containers were not date marked.

Among other violations, some food items were not stored properly to prevent cross contamination. Raw fish and raw shrimp were stored with cooked turkey, fettuccine noodles and beverages. The seafood was relocated.

Blake’s Eatery will be re-inspected July 5, said one of the assistant managers. She said code violations from this inspection were “minor” and had already been taken care of. The restaurant’s previous score was a 77/C.

In other news, Nanoom To Go, 3312 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Duluth, was allowed to re-open after scoring an 88/B on a follow-up inspection.
