Editor's Note: Figures and comments are derived from inspections conducted by the Lewis County Public Health Department's Food Safety Program.
Red violations are those most likely to cause foodborne illness and must be corrected at the time of inspection. Other violations relate to overall cleanliness and operational conditions and must be corrected by established deadlines or by the next routine inspection.
Any establishment receiving 40 red points or any red point item repeated within an 18-month period is considered a high risk and must be reinspected. An establishment that receives 75 red points or 100 total points on a routine inspection or 40 red points on a repeat inspection will have their food establishment permit suspended.
