Food Establishment Scores
To help understand the score of food establishments,
please read the information provided (below).
Health & Food Safety staff inspects food establishments
on a risk-based frequency. The scores listed should be interpreted as
a ‘snapshot’ of observations during an inspection. Health & Food
Safety believes that viewing a history provides the best overview of a food
establishment’s intent and operations. This is why you will find the
past 3 actions performed at each location when expanding a selected food
establishment. The actions include ‘Health Inspection’, ‘Health Reinspection’, ‘Courtesy Inspection’ and ‘Follow Up’.
The score noted beside each food establishment provides
the total score received during the most recent Health Inspection. The
City of Frisco
adopted the Texas Department of State Health Services Inspection Form which
uses a demerit system. There are 27 items on the Inspection Form.
Each item on the Inspection Form carries a demerit value of 3, 4, or 5
points based on violation severity. The final score provides a total
of the demerits. For example, a score of 15 could represent 3
violations at 5 demerits each, or up to 5 violations at 3 demerits each.
The best possible score is ‘0’ (zero) for no demerits.
A food establishment fails if it receives more than 30
demerits (31 or greater). At that time, the Health Inspector may close a
food establishment at his/her discretion. This decision is based on
the nature of the violations, the food establishment’s history of
compliance, and other risk factors. Certain violations may require a
food establishment to immediately close, whether or not the score adds up to
31. When a food establishment is closed by Health & Food Safety, the
front of the food establishment will display a placard or sign stating,
“This establishment is hereby closed by the City of Frisco Health & Food
Safety. Inquiries may contact Health & Food Safety at (972) 292-5304.”
A food establishment that receives a failing score will undergo a Follow Up
inspection to ensure compliance with minimum standards. However, a
food establishment’s original score will remain on this webpage until the
next routine Health Inspection is performed.
Please contact Health & Food Safety if you have any
questions at (972) 292-5304 or email
firstname.lastname@example.org. Health & Food Safety welcomes input on how
we can improve this webpage.
