After discovering Flying Biscuit's failing grade, Patch put in a call to the Gwinnett Health Department which is in charge of inspecting the restaurants in the county to ask how a popular eatery could get a failing grade.
Karen Shields, spokesperson for the Gwinnett Health Department says a failing grade often means "someone wasn't trained properly or properly managed."
Shields said the Health Department generally inspects restaurants every six months but she encouraged diners to use the website to register a complaint.
