A Chipotle restaurant in Gwinnett County, Georgia, has failed its health inspection.

The Gwinnett County health inspector noted that employees handling food at the restaurant were not washing their hands frequently enough to prevent contamination of food.

Other violations included:

  • Chicken not cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit or above
  • Dining counters and tables not cleaned and sanitized by correct methods
  • Held potentially hazardous foods not maintained below 41 degrees Fahrenheit

Channel 2’s Carol Sbarge visited the packed restaurant where one customer said he wouldn’t have come if he knew the score.

“It’s very upsetting. I didn’t go to another restaurant because they had a low score. Now that I know that they had that 60, I’m (not) even going to come here. I had no idea,” said customer Steve Sessa.

The restaurant was still posting an old score of 90, which is a violation.
