‘Roach activity’ causes McDonald’s inside Walmart to fail health inspection

A DeKalb County McDonald’s located inside a Walmart failed its health inspection last week after an official noticed “roach activity.”

The fast food restaurant at the Walmart on Fairington Road in Stonecrest failed with a score of 65 last Thursday, according to the inspection report from the DeKalb County Board of Health.

A health inspector noted seeing roaches near the main handwashing sink, a cooler and the employee table.

There was a black mold-like substance in the back ice machine, the report stated. Some food was also not held at the proper cold temperatures.

An owner for the location did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Channel 2 Action News.

The McDonald’s will have a chance to improve its score after a follow-up inspection in the next few weeks. For the last two inspections, the fast food joint passed, with a score of 88 in February.
