Restaurant Inspections, April & May 2016

Grays Harbor County’s Environmental Health Division lists restaurants and other food-handling establishments that received red and/or blue points, as well as those that didn’t receive any points. Red points are for food-handling practices that, when not done properly, are most likely to lead to food-borne illness. Blue points are primarily for maintenance and sanitation issues that are not likely to result in food-borne illness. A facility found with 20 or more red points is subject to a follow-up inspection. Blue violations should be corrected immediately when possible, but generally do not impose an immediate risk to the public.
