A quarter of Stratford food establishments failed March inspections

April 15, 2019

STRATFORD — A quarter of the food establishments inspected by the Health Department last month failed.

That means they had one or more major, four-point violations or scored lower than 80.

Of a total of 36 inspections in March, inspectors failed nine establishments, a rate of 25 percent.

That figure was lower than January and February, which had failure rates of 31 and 33 percent, respectively.

The most common violations cited by inspectors were food at improper temperatures, unclean equipment and improper storage of toxic chemicals.

If a business fails an inspection, it can be closed if an inspector determines there’s an imminent risk to public health if it were to stay open.

Otherwise, the business will be brought to a hearing at the health department and eventually inspected again.

The inspection forms are available for public inspection at the health department’s offices at 468 Birdseye St.
