Inspection Result Definition
The placard color generally represents how safe it is to eat at this facility. It is based upon the total number of major violations – or critical risk factors – that is more likely to impact the food a consumer eats. Major violations are those that have been identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to cause or contribute to causing illness. The placard color is separate from the score. The placards include:
GREEN - PASS. No more than one major violation was observed and the violation was corrected during the inspection.
YELLOW - CONDITIONAL PASS. Two or more major violations were observed and the violations were corrected during the inspection. A reinspection may be conducted within 3 business days to ensure that the major violations remain permanently corrected. If no major violations are observed during the reinspection, a GREEN - PASS placard will be issued.
RED - CLOSURE. Facility was closed due to an imminent threat to health and safety and the violation(s) were not corrected during the inspection.
N/A – NOT AVAILABLE. Placard was not issued with the inspection activity or inspection activity was performed prior to the placarding program.
Asterisks denote facilities with recent closure activities.
The score is separate from the placard color and is an indication of the facility’s overall compliance with the California Retail Food Code, Health and Safety Code, Division 104, Part 7. The score is calculated based on the number of violation categories observed during the inspection.
Each violation category is pre-assigned with points based on its public health significance: Major (8 points), Moderate (3 points), and Minor (2 points). These points will be deducted from a perfect score of 100.
N/A – NOT AVAILABLE. A score was not issued with the inspection activity or inspection activity was performed prior the placarding program. Scores are only associated with routine inspections.
