Reading inspection scores:
› As of May 2013, compliance ratings (percentage scores) will no longer be given due to changes in the state food code.
Attention should be given to the type of violation (red vs. blue) and whether the restaurant has a history of red violations or repeat violations.
Red violations are those most likely to cause food-borne illness and must be corrected immediately if feasible or according to a compliance schedule established by the health officer. Example: not keeping food at the right temperature.
Blue violations relate to the overall cleanliness and condition of operation and must be corrected according to a compliance schedule established by the health officer. Example: a worn floor that needs replacing.
