Kitchen Cops; restaurant scores 54, shut down temporarily

The restaurant was temporarily shut down. The restaurant was temporarily shut down.

On September 12, China One in Guntersville scored a 54 with the Marshall County Health Department.

Any score below 60 triggers an automatic shutdown, so the health department closed the restaurant. The inspector reported seven critical violations.

The inspector found blood from raw chicken dripping into carrots. Two major violations involved the buffet line as the inspector reported hot holding food on the buffet was between 90 and 118 degrees Fahrenheit, well below the minimum 135 degrees required to prevent bacterial growth. Cold-holding food was reported above the maximum required temperature also. The inspector reported there were severely dented cans of food, a dirty can opener blade, an employee drink on a prep table, and damaged food containers.

China One requested a reinspection that was conducted the next day. The restaurant scored an 87, two points more than the minimum of 85 they needed to in order to reopen.

The Douglas Café in Horton scored a 77. The health inspector reported loose wires on fryer baskets, no measurable chlorine in the dish machine and issues with the proper storage and labeling of cleaning products.

The Sandwich Nook scored an 82. The health inspector cited the Guntersville diner for excessive grease on ground and for a worker's drink found on food prep table
