Orange County Environmental Health will be posting new seals as part of its enhanced public notification system beginning October 1, 2009. These placards assist patrons with making an informed decision regarding food safety prior to entering the food facility.
Placards: Pass: An acceptable level of compliance was achieved. No reinspection is required.
Reinspection Due-Pass: Violations that may cause foodborne illness were observed and corrected. A follow-up inspection will be conducted on the date posted on the seal to ensure continued compliance.
Closed: Violation(s) observed posed an imminent danger to public health or safety, which could not be immediately corrected. Imminent health hazards include but are not limited to:
Lack of potable or warm water
Non-compliance with a Notice of Violation
Operating without a valid health permit
To introduce the enhanced notification seals, Orange County is implementing the following:
Educational Workshops for Retail Food Facility Operators.
Public Outreach to provide information on the different seals.
Supplemental materials such as cleaning schedules, temperature logs, and a food safety manual.
Timeline: All Orange County retail food facilities will receive an enhanced notification seal, which is required to be posted in a conspicuous location near the main entrance, on their first routine inspection after October 1, 2009. New facilities will receive a notification seal with their first routine inspection.
Where: The notification seal posting requirements apply to all Orange County retail food facilities, as well as in unincorporated areas of the County.
Inspection Reports: A copy of inspection reports will continue to be available upon request at the food facility itself, as well as on the website.
