Mike Wasserman / Dine Out

One of the many services provided by Santa Clara County government is protecting consumers by conducting restaurant health inspections. The results of the inspections are now easier than ever for the public to access. Simply download the County’s new SCCDineOut mobile app to find out whether or not a local restaurant is in compliance with food safety laws. Launched recently by the County Department of Environmental Health (DEH), the SCCDineOut app is the latest product in the County’s effort to inform residents about the food safety compliance records of area food facilities

By using SCCDineOut or scanning the QR code on any posted Green, Yellow, or Red colored inspection placard, diners can gain immediate access to the most recent food inspection results for a restaurant, including any specific violations. They will also be able to view a list of restaurants that have been closed for food safety violations during the last six months. The most recent inspection reports are readily available online as well at https://services.sccgov. org/facilityinspection

The information online and on SCCDineOut is in easy-to-understand language. The colored placards are issued as Environmental Health Specialists conduct inspections throughout the year. Inspection schedules vary and depend on the historical compliance of food facilities. The inspections are more frequent for facilities that have had violations.

Features of the new SCCDineOut app include:
• Inspection results for thousands of food facilities within Santa Clara County
• Search by food facility name or those near your current location
• Sort inspection results by compliance score
• View contact information for food facilities
• Easily view closure information for food facilities that are immediately closed due to a major violation
• More information about the placard color and compliance score
• Submit feedback to the Department
