Six of nine 'perfect' scores go to restaurants being re-inspected

Tri-City Herald - 10/2/2017

Oct. 01--Nine Mid-Columbia eateries earned perfect scores on their health department inspections in the week that ended Sept. 15.

Of the nine, six nailed their inspections on a follow-up visit by the Benton-Franklin Health Department's food safety team.

Health inspectors regularly visit more than 1,000 licensed food retail establishments, including restaurants, stores and other locations where food is offered for sale.

Establishments are rated on a 418-point scale covering worker training and knowledge, food handling and overall sanitation.

Those earning 25 or more of the more serious red points on a routine inspection or 10 or more on a follow-up receive additional follow-ups. The current batch includes seven who need additional scrutiny.

Past inspections can be viewed on the health district's website at bfhd.wa.gov/food.index.php.

Direct questions and concerns to 509-460-4205.
