Please keep in mind that any inspection report is a “snapshot” of observations recorded during the time the inspector was at the facility. On any given day, an establishment may have fewer or more violations than noted on the day of the report. Therefore, an inspection report may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions within an establishment.
It is also important to note that if a violation is cited at a particular operation, that violation applies to that location only and is not representative of all other operations owned or managed by the same parent company. In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that complex facilities will always be free of violations. One measure of an operator’s responsiveness is the successful resolution or correction of violations on subsequent inspection reports.
