Pinal County Health Department inspectors visited two Maricopa eateries this week a pizzeria and a yogurt shop. 

Health inspectors visited only those two establishments in the city between Nov. 22 to Nov. 29. This follows InMaricopa’s previous report that saw two new restaurants dinged with violations. 

Both Barro’s Pizza and Yogurt Jungle received flawless inspections Wednesday. They were both given “excellent” ratings. 

What exactly does each food inspector’s rating mean?  

Excellent: All priority standards are observed as compliant. 

Satisfactory: One or more priority standards is out of compliance. All priority standards are corrected at the time of inspection. 

Needs improvement: One or more priority standards is out of compliance. At least one violation is not corrected at the time of inspection. When violations are corrected to the satisfaction of the department during a follow-up inspection, a satisfactory rating will be given. 

Unacceptable: One or more violations observed are an “imminent health hazard.” Hazards include the misuse of poisonous or toxic materials, onset of an apparent foodborne illness outbreak and unsanitary conditions that may endanger public health. Hazards can stem from fires, floods, electrical or water problems, and sewage backup. When violations are corrected to the satisfaction of the department during a follow-up inspection, a satisfactory rating will be given.
