8 fail latest round of Mid-Columbia restaurant inspections

The Benton-Franklin Health District’s food safety team inspected 29 food service establishments the week of Aug. 31 to Sept. 6.

Eight failed and will be reinspected. Another eight received perfect scores.

Inspectors scrutinize establishments on a 418-point scale for compliance with regulations designed to prevent the spread of food-borne illness.

Under revised guidelines, those receiving 35 or more of the more serious red points on routine inspections or 25 or more on follow-ups are scheduled for additional scrutiny.
