Restaurant Inspections: Dunkin Donuts, Minnieland, Tom's Diner, Auntie Anne's

Recent inspection reports from local restaurants and food vendors.

You may want to know how area restaurants performed in their last Virginia Department of Health inspection. 

Restaurants in the Commonwealth are inspected between one and four times a year. There are two types of violations: Critical and non-critical. What's the difference? Critical violations, unless corrected, can contribute to "food contamination, illness or environmental degradation," according to the state health department. 

"In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that a complex, full-service food operation can routinely avoid any violations," according to Virginia Department of Health's website.

The site continues: "Keep in mind that any inspection report is a 'snapshot' of the day and time of the inspection. On any given day, a restaurant could have fewer or more violations than noted in the report. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term cleanliness of an establishment."

Thank you Patch for making the results of these health inspections available. If you look closely at the current and former inspections, you will often notice that these food establishments are repeatedly charged with the same violations. This makes me sick, and as a result, I have formed my own "blacklist." It is not difficult to post handwashing signs for employees, provide paper towels for drying hands or store food items 6" off the floor as required by law. These are fairly common violations. Food safety laws are here for a reason -- to prevent illness. I have no idea what kind of fines these food establishments receive for their violations, but I assume they are not high enough. Hit someone substantially in their wallet and the nonsense will stop!
