Health Inspections for Sept. 30

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. 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.

Any establishment receiving more than 45 red demerit points or more than 65 total demerit points will be automatically reinspected in 10 days. If an establishment exceeds those limits twice in a calendar year, the permit will be suspended immediately. Comments are taken directly from latest county inspection reports, which are available at each food establishment and at the Thurston County Environmental Health Office.

For questions concerning these reports, contact the health office at 360-786-5490.
