UPDATE: The Waffle House was re-inspected four days after its failed inspection, records posted this week to Fulton’s public health inspection page show.
The restaurant received a 96/A on June 30; the sole violation noted was the hand wash sink “lacking proper hand drying provisions.”
After the eatery failed in June, comedian KevOnStage responded to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s article with a nearly three-minute video detailing some of his experiences at the national chain.
ORIGINAL STORY: 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 June 26 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.
The managers are working to correct through coaching to make sure employees are doing all those things right, Warner said.
Follow-up inspections are generally completed within 10 days of the original evaluation.
