Fairfax Health District officials recently inspected food preparation and storage in the Herndon area. Full reports can be accessed on the health department's website.
A "critical violation" is one that "poses a direct or immediate threat to the safety of the food being served."
"In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that a complex, full-service food operation can routinely avoid any violations," according to Virginia Department of Health's website.
