  • Re-inspections are not scored.

What we inspect

Inspectors check for factors that could lead to foodborne illness, including the manner in which foods are received and stored, how food is processed and cooked, and what cooling, holding and reheating temperatures are used. Any practices not in compliance with state laws are reported as violations.

Violations

If critical violations are found that cannot be corrected at the time of the inspection, the restaurant is given 14 days to make the correction (until then a safe, alternative procedure must be in place). A re-inspection is then performed.
