56 establishments get Grade A rating from Bureau of Environmental Health

FIFTY-SIX retail, eating and drinking establishments received a Grade A rating from the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation’s Bureau of Environmental Health following its July sanitary inspections.

“This means they are compliant with sanitary regulations set by the government. They have good systems for preparing food and their facilities are good,” John Tagabuel, CHCC-BEH director, said.

Three establishments obtained Grade B while two received Grade C.

Aside from an actual inspection, Tagabuel said they used descriptive questionnaires to determine if an establishment has deficiencies or not.

“There are some establishments that we marked as Grade A and Grade B if there were some deficiencies, but they were all minor and could be corrected right away,” he said.

A Grade C rating means there are issues with an establishment’s system, including food preparation and proper food storage, he added.

“Obtaining a Grade C does not mean closure of the establishment. It means they barely meet the standards for sanitary regulations. We give them a warning and recommendations. We educate them as well on the proper system of operating food establishments, including preparation, proper storage and labeling of food.”
