Flying Biscuit fails health inspection again

NORCROSS — A popular Gwinnett restaurant is expected to undergo re-inspection within the next couple days after scoring a 40 on a health inspection Sept. 5 — the second time it has failed an inspection this year.

The Flying Biscuit Cafe at 5270 Peachtree Parkway in Norcross was closed for the evening the initial inspection took place, general manager Brad Rubenstein said, but the establishment reopened the following day.

“We corrected everything on site at the time of the inspection,” he said. “We’ve put some tools in place to make sure none of the occurrences continues.”

Violations noted on the inspection report obtained online include foods held at improper temperatures, multiple foods kept past the seven-day refrigerated shelf life and chemicals stored with food products. During the inspection an employee was observed handling trash before continuing to work wearing the same gloves, and a second employee did not change gloves after handling raw egg.

“We worked closely with the health department to come up with a corrective action plan and we are 100 percent compliant now,” Rubenstein said.

The Flying Biscuit Cafe also failed an inspection Jan. 3 with a 65. Upon re-inspection Jan. 7, the establishment scored an 80.

In other recent health inspections, a Loganville restaurant, El Ranchero Grill and Bar scored a 59, and Jamaica Breeze in Lawrenceville scored a 61.
