10 kitchens fail Mid-Columbia restaurant inspections

The Benton-Franklin Health District’s food safety team inspected 43 kitchens the week of April 19-26.

Ten failed and 29 earned perfect scores.

The health district regularly visits more than 1,000 establishments that serve food to the public, including restaurants, schools, retail outlets and concession stands and mobile vendors.

They are scrutinized on a 418-point scale for compliance with health codes designed to prevent the spread of food-borne illnesses.

Those receiving 25 or more of the more serious red points on a routine inspection are scheduled for follow-ups.

It takes only 10 red points on a follow-up to trigger an additional visit. The week before 13 failed and 15 earned perfect marks.

Call 509-460-4205 with concerns or questions.
