Mold, dirty dishes lead to local Taco Mac failing inspection with score of 63

The Taco Mac on Cobb Parkway failed a health inspection on Monday with a score of 63.

Customer Desmond Stearns told Channel 2 anchor Carol Sbarge he didn’t expect that.

Violations included food in the fish fry reach in the cooler not held cold enough, mold inside the ice machine and accumulation of food debris on dishes stored as clean on the front prep line.

Customer Vanessa Lewis said that, normally, the food at that Taco Mac is pretty good.

When Sbarge went to the Taco Mac to ask about the violations, a corporate manager there referred her to the corporate office.

CEO Harold Martin Jr. sent Sbarge an email that said:

Martin also said the company expected a much-improved score on the reinspection. We’ll keep you updated.
