Inspection Comments


Priority violation is a major violation that directly contributes to increasing the risk of foodborne illness or injury.

e.g. - Food employees do not properly wash hands when required

Priority foundation violation is a minor violation that does not directly contribute to an increased risk of foodborne illness but failure to correct this violation may lead to the occurrence of a priority violation.

e.g.- Hand washing soap and paper towels not available at hand wash sink (may lead directly to food employees not properly washing hands when required)

Core violation is a minor violation that relates to general maintenance and sanitation.

e.g. -No sign reminding employees to wash hands
