Restaurant inspection system in Phoenix confuses diners

Maricopa County’s Environmental Services Dept. (that’s where Phoenix, Arizona, is) has adopted a new health inspection system.

Operations Supervisor Jaime Vinaras told KPHO that they no longer use terms like ‘major’ or ‘minor violations.’

Instead, they’re putting potential health problems into three categories:
*Priority item.
*Priority foundation.
*Core item.

However, when you look up restaurants on the county’s web site, , the violations are listed as ‘risk factors’ and ‘good retail practices.’
