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.
