A North Georgia restaurant has been issued a failing score after rodent droppings were discovered for the second time, as per the Washington Post.
The eatery, located in the region, experienced a health inspection on Monday and was granted a score of 59 out of 100, an evaluation deemed failing.
The inspection report, made available by the Department of Public Health, detailed that rodent droppings were found in the kitchen area, a violation which had been previously noted in December of last year.
The inspection report also revealed that the restaurant failed to adequately store and label foods, maintain food surfaces and equipment, and clean the facility.
The health inspector additionally noted that the restaurant had no food safety certified person on site.
The restaurant must now have a re-inspection and score a satisfactory rating of 85 or higher in order to remain open.
This is not the first time that the North Georgia eatery has experienced health code violations. In 2017, the restaurant had multiple violations and was nearly shut down.
The Department of Public Health has pledged to continue to monitor the restaurant, and has reiterated its commitment to the safety and well-being of the community.
