During this first weekend of Spring, many of you may want to ditch the house and eat out. There were no failures in Hamilton county but one restaurant in North Georgia scored a 64.

The Artzy Café in Trenton lost points when the person in charge did not display adequate knowledge when it comes to food safety. Inspectors also say an employee used gloves to touch raw chicken, that employee then put on new gloves without washing her hands.  Also, raw bacon was stored above ready-to-eat deli meat.

The inspector also observed employees preparing food without hairnets. According to an inspection report, these issues must be corrected by next month. 

In Hamilton County, Ayala on Taft Highway scored an 84 during their initial inspection. Reasons included raw meat stored above ready to eat food in the cooler, mildew growth on the inside of the ice machine, and the Inside of the reach-in cooler was dirty.  The restaurant was able to improve its score to a 93 during a follow-up inspection.
