Below is a summary of the violations found during the inspection. The department cites violations of Florida’s sanitation and safety laws based on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Food Code standards. High priority violations are those that can directly contribute to a foodborne illness or injury and include things like cooking, reheating, cooling and handwashing. Medium priority violations are those that, if not addressed, can lead to risk factors that contribute to a foodborne illness or injury. These violations include staff training, documentation or recordkeeping, and labeling. Basic violations are those that are considered best practices. While most establishments address all violations in a timely manner (often during the inspection), the department’s procedures are designed to enforce compliance with all violations through follow-up visits, administrative action, or closure if necessary.
