Restaurant inspections, El Rocio Mexican Restaurant

A Mexican restaurant in south Fulton failed a recent health inspection because some of the food was not being protected from contamination.

Also, there was no soap or hot water available at the hand sink for employees at El Rocio Mexican Restaurant, 2873 Main St., East Point.

The restaurant was given a 58/U on the routine inspection.

Points were taken off because a walk-in cooler had contaminated food. Chili and lettuce both had “mold-like growth,” the inspector said. Also, sauces, bread and cooked beef were uncovered and subject to contamination.

Other food items were not placed properly. Shrimp was stored above taco shells, and raw eggs were above wraps. Raw meats were also improperly stored in another cooler.

Points were also taken off because the soda dispensing nozzles and the inside of the ice machine had a build-up of black slime. The can opener blade was also dirty.

Among other code violations, leftover rice, pinto beans, sauces and other food items were not date-marked for disposal. Shopping bags were being used for food storage.

The inspector recommended that El Rocio receive more food safety training prior to a follow-up inspection. Restaurant management could not be reached for comment. Previous scores were 90/A and 74/C.
