A Duluth McDonald’s failed a health inspection Monday afternoon after an inspector noted “multiple critical violations,” a report says.
The restaurant at 3485 Peachtree Industrial Blvd. scored a 63/U on the Nov. 27 inspection. The last recorded score for the restaurant was an 82/B in May.
An inspector found a “large build-up of mold-like substance” on the nozzles of a self-serve drink dispenser in the dining room, the report said. Shelving in reach-in coolers were “rusted with food accumulation” and peroxide was being stored above napkins, drink lids and ketchup packets, according to the report.
The inspector saw an employee use the same rag to clean multiple dining room tables, and multiple employees’ cell phones were stored over food preparation tables, the report said. One employee was seen preparing a drink while wearing “long fake nails,” which are not permitted in a restaurant kitchen.

McDonald’s didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Re-inspections are typically conducted within 10 days of failures.
