April 15 – New County Ordinance Requires Restaurants to Post Inspection Placard

Beginning April 15 restaurants and other food facilities will be required to post color-coded placards that clearly signal to customers how they perform on inspections.

The placard program is part of the County’s robust system of food safety. Currently, restaurants are inspected two to three times per year. The new placards will start being posted as soon as April 15 of this year. Some, such as supermarkets with delis and bakeries, will have multiple placards depending on the section of the business.

The County’s free smartphone app, called “Food Inspector,” uses GPS to provide users with instant, detailed inspection information about nearby restaurants and is available at cchealth.org/placard and is downloadable for iOS or Android through Apple’s iTunes Store or Google’s Play Store.

    I’ve looked at Oakley restaurants scorecards and compared them to others. Doesn’t look too good. I’m wondering what the city and community can do to help bring these scores up? Try Food Inspector 2.0.3
