Trumbull health inspectors visited 27 restaurants in July, issuing failing grades to eight of them, including one establishment that failed a mandatory reinspection following a prior fail.
Health inspectors visit restaurants unannounced quarterly, and grade them on a numerical scale, with 100 points being a perfect score. Inspectors deduct between one and four points for any of 62 possible violations. Any score under 80 is considered a failure. In addition, a restaurant receiving any four-point violation is considered to have failed its inspection and must correct the infraction before its reinspection, generally within the next two weeks.
