China Panda's permit suspended, other Peachtree Corners inspection grades range from 84-B to 100-A. Find out if your favorite eatery is on the list.

Following is a list of five Peachtree Corners restaurants which have been inspected recently by the Gwinnett County's Board of Health.

Inspectors from the Board inspect area restaurants every six months and then grade them based on extensive criteria that include everything from food being stored at proper temperatures to employee hygiene.

Restaurants are required to display these reports in a prominent place for diners to view. This is what we found in a random search of inspections on the county's website.

Inspector's Comments: 
  • Observed an open bag of chips and a plastic cup without a lid on the food prep table. Items were removed. Employees shall consume food only in approved designated areas separate from food preparation and serving areas, equipment or utensil areas and food storage areas. However, drinking from a single service beverage cup with a secure lid and straw that is handled to prevent contamination of the employee’s hands, the container, exposed food, clean equipment,utensils and linens, unwrapped single-service and single-use articles will be allowed.
  • Eye solution, instant burn spray and antacid was stored above food in the prep area. Items were removed. Poisonous or toxic materials shall be stored so they can not contaminate food, equipment, utensils, linens, and single-service and single-use articles.
  • The hand sink in the front prep area has to be cut on from the bottom to obtain hot water and it continues to run. The water will not turn off properly unless it is cut off from the bottom. The hand sink in the back area has electric foil around the nozzle to control the leak. I spoke with person in charge and discussed with him about having these items repaired. They were malfunctioning from a previous inspection. Plumbing should be maintained and in good repair.
