The B Square has compiled the monthly food inspection reports, which are available since December 2022, into a single Google Sheet, and plotted out the locations for each establishment on a color-coded map.
The critical and non-critical violation numbers for each restaurant and descriptions are included in each row of the Google Sheet, as well as each location plotted on the map. (Click on a dot, and the information associated with that location will appear in the left sidebar of the map.)
The most recent month of inspections is what’s currently displayed on the map. To make the layers from previous months visible, toggle them on in the left sidebar.
Here’s the boilerplate wording for the difference between a critical and a non-critical violation from the Monroe County Health Department’s website:
Critical violations are defined as those that are likely to directly contribute to a foodborne disease. The most common and most dangerous critical violations are various degrees of temperature abuse. Potentially hazardous foods must be kept at or above 135º F or at or below 41º F. Failure to do so, or failure to cook food to the proper temperature or cool cooked food quickly (within 6 hours) to below 41ºF, is the leading cause of foodborne illness.
Non-critical violations are those that have contributing factors, but are generally not the primary cause of an outbreak.
Color Coded Map
(The color coding scheme goes like this: Green=Zero violations; Yellow=At least 1 non-critical violation but no critical violations; Red=At least 1 critical violation.) The dots on the map are grouped by month as separate layers. Different layers can be toggled on and off separately.
