5 Branford restaurants fail, then pass, health inspections in last six months


BRANFORD — Five Branford restaurants failed health inspections in the last six months, but all passed when reinspected, reports how. The inspections were carried out by the East Shore District Health Department, which covers Branford, North Branford and East Haven.

The five restaurants that initially failed were G.W. Carson’s Burger Bar, Lenny’s Indian Head Inn, Parthenon Diner Restaurant, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and Shoreline Café & Catering.

All establishments that serve food are subject to inspections one to three times a year, depending on the type of establishment. Each item on a detailed inspection sheet is given a risk factor of 1 to 4. To pass, the restaurant must meet two main requirements: It must score a minimum of 80 points out of 100, and it must not have any 4-point infractions, which pose the highest threat to food safety.

Amy Scholz, deputy director of the health department, said most failures are the result of a critical 4-point infraction, which include re-serving food, poor water quality, inadequate sewage disposal or cross-connections between machinery such as ice machines, food equipment and chemical dispensers.

She said the East Shore department follows the food code set by the Food and Drug Administration.
