Food Safety in the OC

According to a grand jury report released today, Orange County restaurants aren't doing the best job letting customers know about health inspections. There were more than 20,000 major food-safety violations in 2007 in OC restaurants, supermarkets and other food venues, everything from a lack of hot water to vermin infestations; there were also more than 163,000 minor violations. Most people don't see the inspection certificates, and Orange County is one of the few in California without the letter grade system that LA implemented 10 years ago. The Board of Supervisors is finally "contemplating one." [OC Register via LAist]
