The ABC GRADING SYSTEM for food handling facilities was developed by Los Angeles in the late 90’s and has spread rapidly , not only in California but nationwide. It spread because everywhere it was instituted the cases of foodborne illnesses dropped. Stats show these problems have dropped as much as 40% in places where it is used. Orange County board of supervisor continues to make the mistake of trying to use a system that is not good. They keep “tweeking the one they got which isn’t working”. (READ OUR PREVIOUS BLOGG POSTING, (Orange County Residents’ Must Speak Out!). The Orange County Grand Jury want’s the ABC CARD system, the Orange County Department of Public Health want’s the ABC CARD system, but the board of supervisors wants to keep making the mistake of not changing. People should be asking the question, Why Not?

Here’s the reasons the board is using to fight This Change:

It’s too punitive. Is it too punitive to make these facilities keep their place clean?

It’s too costly. A study showed it would cost each facility $7 per Year.

The current system works. Read ABOUT True Food Kitchen in Newport Beach. After this place was closed and forced to clean up its act , it was cited 3 months later for the same problems that sicken people before. It’s still open and still getting cited.

Inspectors are corrupt. Haven’t heard of any inspectors asking for brides, have you?

Inspectors are racists. A dirty, roach infested, rodent infested, unsanitary kitchen needs fixing no matter who you are! I can’t believe she made that statement!

Rules are too harsh for immigrant entrepreneurs. I though the rules set up for public safety were the same for everybody. Should we cut anyone slack on this issue!

Don’t you think Eleanor’s advice fits this issue?
