Why Commercial Kitchens Get Shut Down

Inspectors in the Los Angeles area inspect facilities from 1 to 3 times a year. They can come at any time to do the inspection. If they discover that a restaurant is in violation of the food service codes, they can shut down the facility at the time of the inspection. This can be devastating to your business. Food service code violation may vary by state but there are similarities across the board. Some of the safety code violations include the following:

  • Not following safe food handling procedures
  • Using utensils on raw meat that is near cooked food
  • Using the same surface to prepare raw meat that you use for cooked food
  • Employees not having adequate hand washing items such as soap, hot water, and paper towels
  • Poor temperature control for food, which will lead to potential food-borne illnesses
  • Sewage issues (especially backing up problems)
  • Refrigerator damage (not cooling properly)
  • Proof of food-borne contamination at an establishment
  • Having rodents present in the facility
  • Having pests present in the facility

Once an inspector shows up at a facility and notices that there is a violation of any of the food service codes, then a shut down may be imminent.

Impact on Your Restaurant Business

Health code violations in commercial kitchens can have severe consequences, reaching far beyond the immediate operational challenges. These infractions can result in legal penalties and hefty fines, straining financial resources and diverting them away from growth opportunities.

Equally damaging is the hit to the business’s reputation, with news of violations spreading quickly through word of mouth and online reviews, eroding customer trust and loyalty. The loss of patrons, who no longer feel safe dining at the establishment, can significantly impact revenue.

Regulatory authorities may increase their scrutiny, leading to more frequent inspections and greater oversight. In extreme cases, severe violations can lead to temporary or permanent closure, causing businesses to struggle with revenue loss and recovery. Furthermore, violations can erode staff confidence and morale, potentially increasing turnover and decreasing productivity.
