Restaurant inspections, Che Van Lai at the Hong Kong Supermarket

Bugs were found in bulk containers of starch and rice at one of the food stalls inside the Hong Kong Supermarket on Jimmy Carter Boulevard in Norcross.

Che Van Lai, 5495 Jimmy Carter Blvd., was given a failing score of 68/U on the recent routine inspection and told to discard the food items.

Gwinnett County health officials also suspended the food service permit for repeatedly not documenting time controls used for potentially hazardous foods.

Corn, mung beans and sweet rice were all thrown away because they had been left out on the prep table and were not within the safe temperature range. The staff did not document start and discard times to ensure food safety.

The inspector said it was the third time Che Van Lai has been cited for this code violation.

Che Van Lai also had repeat violations of unclean utensils and other cooking items. Knives, a slicer and a strainer were dirty with food debris, despite being stored as clean. The items were rewashed, rinsed and sanitized.

Bulk storage containers and outside equipment were also dirty with food and dirt buildup. And the floors needed detail cleaning to remove dirt, the inspector said.

Che Van Lai met with health officials to discuss the code violations, and will be re-inspected before re-opening.

In other news, a recently featured restaurant, China King, 3201 Tucker-Norcross Road, Tucker, brought its failing health score up to an 81/B on a recent follow-up inspection.
