Food Services At Georgia Senior Living Community Fail Health Inspection

The food services at a Cumming senior living community failed its routine health inspection last week after a county inspector noted raw animal food stored over ready-to-eat food, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Lanier Place at 440 Tribble Gap Road received a 65/U on the inspection last Thursday, according to a Georgia Department of Public Health report. It had scored 97/A and 57/U on its previous inspection reports last year.

The county inspector noted that the person in charge lacked "food retail practices" and was unaware of his responsibility to inform employees to report to authority about their health as they relate to diseases transmissible through food.

The inspector wrote that the the manager lacked proof of a Food Manager Certification. The establishment also does not have set procedures for employees in events of vomiting or diarrhea.

The inspector found expired milk, wet wiping cloths stored on countertops, improperly sanitized dining tables and potentially hazardous food was not properly date-marked after opening.

A Lanier Place manager could not comment on the inspection when contacted Monday. A follow-up inspection will occur July 8, according to the report.
