A third of Stratford food establishments failed inspections in February

March 18, 2019

STRATFORD — A third 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.

Out of a total of 27 inspections in February, inspectors failed nine establishments. Two of them passed reinspections later in the month.

Improper food storage and temperatures were the most common violations cited by inspectors. Unclean work spaces and missing thermometers were among the other infractions noted.

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.
