Original story:A Gwinnett County Subway restaurant has failed its latest health inspection, records show.

The sandwich shop on Buford Highway earned a 52/U on the May 23 inspection. An inspector found a “black substance” on soda nozzles and tuna that was not cooling to a safe temperature quickly enough.

One employee began making a sandwich after handling money, failing to wash his hands. Another did not wash his hands between sweeping the floor and picking up clean utensils, the report says.

Bags of cheddar cheese and meatballs were being held above 41 degrees, which is considered the maximum safe temperature, the report says. The restaurant didn’t have a thermometer with which to test the temperatures, according to the report.
