The Fulton County health inspector said the restaurant failed to provide active managerial control over food safety.
Among other code violations, an employee did not wash hands after loading dirty dishes into the dishwasher then handling clean dishes.
Two employee hand-sinks had buckets for sanitizing solution stored inside, making them inaccessible for washing hands. Bottles of glass cleaner were stored next to clean drinking glasses. And a bottle of perfume was in the dry storage area next to canned goods.
Points were also taken off because foil was being used to line all the equipment at the cook-line and inside the reach-in coolers. There was heavy food debris on all of the gaskets in the coolers, and date-mark stickers were still intact on the outside of clean containers.
The restaurant was also late in paying its annual fee for a food service permit.
Thumbs Up Diner will be re-inspected.
