Three Hamden food establishments failed health inspections

HAMDEN — Health department records show three food establishments in town got a “C” rating during health inspections in the last six months, the lowest grade given by the Quinnipiack Valley Health District.

But all three restaurants did well on subsequent reinspections, scoring an “A” grade. An inspector noted cleanup at the restaurant that had received the lowest score was “much better” on the second inspection.

A “C” grade “indicates the establishment is in need of improvements to minimize risks of illness, but there is no immediate threat requiring closure of the establishment,” according to the QVHD’s rating criteria.
