TERRE HAUTE —
All restaurant inspections by the Vigo County Health Department are scored on a critical and non-critical system.
To make the scores easier to comprehend:
A critical item is one that is likely to contribute to food contamination or food-borne illness.
A non-critical item is a violation that is less likely to cause food contamination or an illness but is undesirable in a food establishment.
Today's inspections list includes the week of July 18-22
