A food facility may receive a noncompliant rating for various reasons that can contribute to unsafe food handling, but not make eating there "imminently dangerous". Facilities posing imminent health risks will be closed by the Environmental Health Department until the hazards or conditions causing the problem are corrected. For a listing of facilities that have been downgraded check out our facility downgrades page. FYI: By law the most recent inspection report is required to be kept onsite and a copy provided to anyone who asks for it.
