slides: 50 Restaurants with Worst Health Code Scores in Worcester

Monday, September 02, 2013

 

If you have a favorite restaurant in Worcester, you may be interested to know how it fared on its most recent inspection report.

However, if you don't make the trip to 25 Meade Street to go through the nearly 1700 paper records on file, you might not ever know the score.

"What does the inspection really mean? That's debatable. The inspector's in there one or two times a year," said Roy Costa, a national food safety expert and "public health sanitarian consultant."

"Regular inspections are a hammer -- a blunt instrument. If you need to hit someone over the head, you have the tool," said Costa. "Otherwise, inspections can be a lot of guesswork."

See What Experts Had to Say About Restaurant Inspections -- and Foodborne Illness

According to the most recent annual report filed with the state, as required by law, the City of Worcester conducted over 2,000 inspections of 1,427 establishments in 2012, with 5 full time food inspectors.

In total, the Worcester Department of Inspections investigated nearly 200 general food complaints in 2012, investigating 11 foodborne illness complaints -- 3 of which involved two or more people -- and issued 9 license suspensions, but no license revocations.

Today, after weeks of combing through the paper food inspection files found on the third floor of 25 Meade Street, GoLocalWorcester looks at restaurants with the most amount of violations found, from number fifty down to number one.
