Restaurant inspections, China Spring

You know the health inspection isn’t going well when the manager certified to ensure food safety gets flagged for not properly washing his hands or wearing a hair restraint.

China Spring, 7836 Tara Blvd., Jonesboro, paid the price for these violations, plus numerous others, during a recent routine inspection. The restaurant scored a 39/U.

The Clayton County health inspector said the food safety manager washed his hands, but then didn’t use a paper towel as a barrier when turning off the faucet. In fact, there were no paper towels at the employee hand sink, which was another code violation, according to the inspection report.

The manager and another employee were not wearing hair restraints while preparing food. The inspector was told there were no hair restraints in the facility.

Also, children were in the food prep area, which is against health regulations.

In other code violations, numerous food items had been taken out of their original packaging and placed in other containers that were either unmarked or improperly marked. For example, six different 5-gallon containers labeled “soy sauce” held various other sauces.

Each container must be properly labeled to identify the food item by its common name, the inspector said.

The restaurant also needed a thorough cleaning. Grease and other food debris were on the vent hood and coolers.

A manager with China Spring said the facility would be cleaned before the follow-up inspection expected this week. The restaurant’s previous two health scores were 72/C.
