Tri-City restaurant inspections through Nov. 25

Tri-City restaurant inspections through Nov. 25 Tri-City Herald

Each week, the Tri-City Herald publishes results for restaurants that score 25 or more “Red” points on their Benton-Franklin Health District inspections, triggering automatic revisits.

By law, all establishments selling food are subject to inspection, from full-service restaurants to coffee carts.

Establishments are rated on a state point system that’s based on the federal food code for the conditions in the restaurant at the time of the unannounced inspection. The point scale ranges up to 415 points.

Red points reflect more concerning issues requiring immediate inspection. An establishment receiving 25 or more points on a routine inspection must be re-inspected. Blue points indicate situations that need to be fixed, but not immediately. Restaurants receiving 10 or more Red points when re-inspected are inspected again.

To view copies of the health department’s reports for all establishments inspected regardless of results, go to tricityherald.com.
