  • Components of Inspection

    Components vary in how they are considered from Left to Right side.

  • CDI
    (Correction During Inspection)

    Answer: Discuss CDI for the left side. (Foodborne Illness Risk Factors & Interventions) item 1-27


    Get ready for the pandemonium of correction.

    All citationsYour timeTrue correctionAssess correction as if you would any other time Is correction discretionary? Yes They cannot to satisfaction of Department. Less than yes: Give points when true efforts have been made. Remember you still have to assess AMC

    Why would we want corrective action on a core violation? Well get to that in a minute.

    Answer: That will be beneficial to the inspector. They will not have to do a follow-up inspection if the core violation(s) was CDI.
