These four stores all have one thing in common, an unsatisfactory sanitary inspection.

The Food Safety and Inspection Division is the NYS Department’s biggest division, and a large majority of the food safety program rests solely on establishment inspections.
After a sanitary inspection of a retail food store, the inspector will issue the store a 'Notice of Inspection.' The Notice of Inspection will give the store an "A," "B," or "C" letter grade, which corresponds to the results of their most recent sanitary inspection.

A - No critical deficiencies were found. (Food safety program in place is working.)
B - Although critical deficiencies were found, they were corrected at the time of inspection. (Room for continuous improvement.)
C - Critical deficiencies were found but were not or could not be corrected. (Need for immediate corrective action.)

The Department requires that the Notice of Inspection be posted near the public entrance to the store. Consumers can also request copies of the inspection notice from the retailer.
