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.
Kountry Korner, 8125 Albany Highway, Sasser - Grade: 82
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 being no water, paper towels and soap at the kitchen handwash sink. Paper towels were also missing from the two restroom handwash sinks.
Raw eggs were stored above ready-to-eat foods in the cooler. Eggs were moved to a separate area in the cooler.
Kountry Korner was also cited for chicken being thawed improperly. This was corrected on-site.
