Food Establishment Inspection Scores

Food Establishment Inspection Reports 
Explanation of scoring system:
  • Score is a reflection of violations based on demerits: 0 (zero) is a "perfect" score, 30 is a failing score. An inspection score of 30 or more requires a follow-up within 3 days. Inspection score of 25 or more requires follow-up if priority items are not able to be corrected during initial inspection.
  • Priority Items (3 points each) are the highest risk items for causing food-borne illnesses. These items if cited as a violation must be corrected within 3 days if not able to do so immediately, it may require reheating, rapid cooling, or discarding food out of proper temperature range. 
  • Priority Foundation Items (2 points each) are focused on facility procedures, facility maintenance and equipment necessary to maintain proper food safety, these violations should be corrected immediately where possible. Where not possible they should be corrected within 90 days or by next scheduled inspection whichever comes first.
