Updates from last week


Teriyaki Madness, at 7041 Schaefer Ave. Suite A in Chino, which was closed May 9 because of a cockroach infestation and received a failing grade of 82/B, reopened May 10 after an inspector saw no evidence of a live vermin infestation (see report). The facility was to be re-inspected again within a week to check again for vermin and whether other violations including a broken refrigerator had been corrected.


Tropicana Liquor, at 14875 Main St. Suite 101 in Hesperia, which was closed May 10 because of a rodent infestation and received a failing grade of 88/B, reopened May 11 after an inspector found all evidence of rodents had been removed (see report). The inspector noted that holes in the walls still needed to be repaired and a heavy infestation of fruit flies in the storage room still needed to be eliminated.



The county routinely inspects and grades all facilities that handle open, non-pre-packaged food. An A grade (90 to 100 points) is passing. Grades of B (80-89 points) and C (79 or below) are failing and typically require the proprietor to make improvements and be re-inspected. A facility may be closed because of a major violation that can’t immediately be fixed, and it can’t reopen until the violation has been corrected.


This list is published online on Fridays. Any updates as restaurants are reopened or regraded will be included in next week’s list. For more information on inspections of these or any restaurants in San Bernardino County, visit www.sbcounty.gov/dph/ehsportal/Facilities/Food.
