    NASHVILLE (WSMV) — After conducting a health inspection, the Tennessee Department of Health embargoed approximately 21 lbs of food from a Germantown restaurant Thursday.

According to a report obtained by News4, the restaurant, 5th & Taylor, received the report Thursday with a score of 59 from the TDH after the inspection.

The following list is the foods that the TDH embargoed according to their report:

– Observed water dripping from the top of Milk In Cooler 2 into a container of shredded cheese: 1 lb embargoed.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, refrigerated food must be stored at 40F or lower, and if not, that could cause bacteria that cause foodborne illness to grow.
