This bill requires the Commissioner of Health, in consultation with local health agencies, to establish a uniform standard for health and sanitary evaluation placards that includes a three-tier color-coded evaluation system to indicate a health inspector's evaluation of the compliance of a retail food establishment subject to the State Sanitary Code. Currently, upon the conclusion of a retail food establishment's health inspection, the inspector issues one of three evaluation placards: "satisfactory," "conditionally satisfactory," or "unsatisfactory." These placards are posted by a retail food establishment in a conspicuous place for view by the public. There is no uniform color-coded standard in the State for visually distinguishing between the three evaluation placards. The bill, requires the new uniform standard to include a three-tier color-coded evaluation placard system indicating "satisfactory," "conditionally satisfactory," or "unsatisfactory" compliance by a retail food establishment subject to the State Sanitary Code, and any rules and regulations adopted thereunder. The bill also explicitly states that the provisions under the bill would supersede any municipal ordinance or regulation concerning health and sanitary evaluation placards posted in retail food establishments.
