As fans of RHOA know, viewers got to see Kandi Burruss’ new restaurant while it was being built during the last season. According to the Georgia Health Inspector, the Atlanta resto, Old Lady Gang, was given the grade of “C,” regarding the establishment meeting state guidelines for health and sanitation practices.
In a report from the Health Department, they wrote, “There were no soap or paper towels at handwashing sink as well as ‘soil build-up’ inside the ice bin.”
Food that was deemed to be “potentially hazardous,” was held at a location greater than 41 degrees Fahrenheit.
One worker wasn’t wearing a hairnet and the “wet wiping cloth” was not stored in solution for sanitization between use.
If that isn’t bad enough, the inspector also criticized the use of an old cutting board that was too “grooved and pitted,” so it was no longer “cleanable.”
And while the inspector was stringent, most health professionals agree on the importance of replacing cutting boards for several reasons.
Harmful bacteria can become lodged in the crevices of the knife marks on the board, potentially leading to illness.
Hopefully, for the sake of her business, Kandi will learn from her mistakes next time around.
In discussion with The Daily Dish back in March of 2017, Burruss remarked that she wanted to be open for at least a month before doing a “big grand opening,” due to the fact that she wants to avoid being the victim of harsh criticism. Her grand opening would be after the resto opens its doors and the vicious critics move on to somebody else.
