All food establishments receive at least one unannounced inspection each year. All violations observed during an inspection should be corrected immediately. If a violation is unable to be corrected at the time of inspection, a follow-up inspection may be conducted, or the operator may be allowed to submit a violation correction report (VCR) within a timeline approved by the inspector.
