A Waffle House in Atlanta failed a health inspection. 

An Atlanta Waffle House failed a recent health inspection, Fulton County records show.

The restaurant on Howell Mill Road scored a 63/U following the Monday evaluation; 69 and below is considered failing. Its prior score, from December, was a 99/A.

According to the report, an employee did not properly wash their hands before donning new gloves to prepare food.

Officials also reported food held longer than seven days and food debris inside reach-in coolers.

Pat Warner, director of public relations and external affairs, said the company apologizes for letting down its customers and associates. 

The regional manager said the major violations were behavioral in nature, such as not having eggs labeled or improper hand washing, according to Warner.
