2 fail their Tri-Cities restaurant inspections

The Benton-Franklin Health District released results for seven restaurant inspections the week of June 29-July 5.

The short list included two failures and four perfect scores.

Last week, four Tri-Cities kitchens flunk their health inspections.

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

Those receiving 35 or more of the more serious red points on routine inspections or 10 or more on follow-ups are scheduled for additional inspections.

Call 509-460-4205 for information.
