A Boston Market in Duluth failed its latest health inspection, Gwinnett County records show.
The restaurant on Pleasant Hill Road earned a 65/U on the Monday inspection, down from a 90/A in May.
A health inspector found a “large build-up of food debris” on a deli slicer and raw poultry being stored over green beans in a walk-in freezer. Some cooked chickens were held at too low a temperature, the report said.

Knives that were used to cut raw chicken were not cleaned after use, the report said. There were also multiple pans and pieces of equipment that were stored wet when they were supposed to be clean, according to the report.
“Boston Market is committed to the health and safety of our food and restaurants. This restaurant previously met our high standards for health and safety, receiving an “A” rating in May 2017,” a Boston Market spokesperson said. “We are quickly addressing the issues raised in this inspection, many of which were addressed during the inspection, to ensure we return to the “A” rating we expect from this restaurant and all Boston Market restaurants.”
Re-inspections are typically conducted within 10 days of failures.
