The City of Kingsville City-County Health Department has released food inspection scores for the period of Sept. 23 - Oct. 4.

Food service inspections are conducted on a quarterly schedule per year based on the risk category to ensure compliance with the Texas Food Service Establishment Regulations and local food sanitation ordinances. 

Risk levels include low, moderate and high risk. Establishment scoring is based on a demerit system, as per The Texas Food Establishment Rules. There are two types of violations.

Critical violations are five and four points demerits per violation and non-critical violations are three points demerit violations. 

Critical violations are improper practices and actions that directly contribute to food contamination and temperature abuse that may pose a potential risk to the public health, resulting in food borne illness. Critical violations must be corrected immediately or as directed by the Health Department. 

Non-critical violations are unacceptable practices that normally relate to the physical condition of an establishment, including equipment, cleaning and storage. Non-critical violations must be corrected before the next routine inspection or as directed by the Health Department.
