Local Health Departments & Letter Grades

Aug 23

Many local health departments around the state have proposed posting letter grades in restaurant windows to reflect their health inspection score. While grades may initially appear useful to consumers, grading schemes unfortunately are not a reliable reflection of current cleanliness and safety in a restaurant.  Moreover, grades absolutely cannot predict conditions –good or bad –when a consumer visits.

The Texas Restaurant Association opposes letter grade systems and works closely with local health departments considering this approach to provide information on the weaknesses, and fallacies of the system.
