The Salt Lake Valley Health Department (SLVHD) has now made its food establishment inspection results available online at their SLVHD food establishment ranking web site. The site includes information on how food establishments are scored, inspector jargon, enforcement actions, inspection history and types of violations, etc.
I'm pretty certain many restaurateurs won't be too pleased with this new "public" airing of health violations, since virtually no restaurant goes unscathed.
As for me, I'm not so sure our government should be in the restaurant star-ranking business. Salt Lake County food establishments are now rated from 1 to 4 stars, based on the SLVHD inspection results.
What do you think about this?
