Violation Severity


Violations may be classified as critical or non-critical. Critical violations, such as temperature control and cross-contamination issues, are more likely than other violations to contribute to food contamination, illness, injury, or cause an environmental health hazard. In the event that a critical violation is found, immediate action is taken to resolve the issue to ensure that the public health is not put at further risk.

A non-critical violation is one that does not seriously affect the public health. Any non-critical violations found during an inspection must be corrected by the time of the next inspection.
