(WMC TV) - Eight restaurants rated health inspection scores in the 70's, including a Mickey D's that landed the Scorecard's Low Score of the Week.

Aug. 25, McDonald's, 2994 Poplar Ave. in the Chickasaw Gardens neighborhood of East Memphis, scored a 70

It flirted with the failure line, racking up four critical violations:

"employee dropped utensil on floor (did not sanitize utensil)...returned to prep area with utensil and did not wash hands after picking utensil off floor"

"unlabeled chemical spray bottle"

"front handsink near cash register - no hot water"

"no cold water at hand sink (in drive thru)"

"Good health scores are important to us," said Steve Lykins, spokesperson for Century Management LLC, which owns and operates the Chickasaw Gardens McDonald's. "We have already taken care of the issues, the plumbing ones included, and we're just looking forward to the health department coming back and doing a re-visit."
