Health inspectors are keeping a close eye out for hygiene violations - things like handling food and drinks properly and correct hand washing procedures. If these violations are allowed to go on without being corrected, customers could possibly get sick.
Wing Dixie & Deli, 2601 Dawson Rd., Albany - Grade: 78
According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, any score below 70 is considered unsanitary.
During the inspection, the health inspector docked points for there not being any soap at the back handwash station, the front service area and by the grill. Paper towels were missing from the grill and in the employee restroom.
Hot and cold food temperatures were not correct. The items were removed from service at the time of the inspection.
Multiple unlabeled chemical bottles were stored at the three-compartment sink.
Lastly, Wing Dixie & Deli was cited for stagnant water being used to thaw frozen wings in a three-compartment sink. The person-in-charge corrected the problem.
