Atlanta food truck reinspected after recently failed health check

UPDATE: Gekko Truck passed a reinspection Thursday, scoring an 87/B. The two violations listed on the report included a “sanitizing solution at toxic levels” and raw beef, raw chicken, eel and sliced avocado held above 41 degrees Fahrenheit. 

ORIGINAL STORY (published July 10): A food truck that serves metro Atlanta failed a recent health inspection, Fulton County records show.

Gekko Truck, a mobile sushi and hibachi restaurant, scored a 64/U following the Thursday evaluation; 69 and below is considered failing. Its prior score, from February, was a 91/A.

According to the report, a person in charge failed "to demonstrate knowledge” of complying with food code.

Officials also reported that the rear door was open and food, including salmon, eggs and sauce, was held at unacceptable temperatures.

Swift action was taken, according to Yu Bai, the truck’s ServSafe certification holder.

“We fired the food truck manager and we will fix everything,” Bai, who also assumed the truck manager role, said in an email.
