Haley Furstenwerth, Environmental Health Specialist II with the Grays Harbor Environmental Health Division released the latest Grays Harbor County food safety inspection scores for January 2020 showing which local businesses were cited.
In Aberdeen, 5 businesses saw points against them.
La Salvadorena and Mr. Taco were both shown with 25 Red Points against them in January.
The department notes;
“Red critical violations” are those food handling practices that, when not done properly, are most likely to lead to foodborne illnesses. These food handling practices include:
“Blue violations” are primarily maintenance and sanitation issues that are not likely to be the cause of a foodborne illness.
Each violation has a numerical value based on its risk of foodborne illness. Therefore, there are more points given for red critical violations than for blue violations.
Whenever possible, violations found during the inspection are corrected immediately.
Red critical items found during the inspection must be corrected immediately. Examples would be re-heating a food to 165° F, putting it into the refrigerator or discarding the food.
