Health Department releases September food service reports

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

The Health Department divides food service code violations into two categories; Priority and Core items.

Priority items are more likely than other violations to contribute to food contamination, or illness and/or injury.

Core items although important to the overall hygiene of the establishment, do not necessarily present an immediate threat to food contamination or illness and/or injury.

A report for each establishment that is inspected shows the number of priority items, along with a short statement as to the nature of the violations. The report also shows the number of core items, but doesn’t list the nature of those violations.
