NoticeEach restaurant inspection report is a “snapshot” of conditions present at the time of the inspection. On any given day Waffle House #806 in Palm Bay Florida may have fewer or more violations than noted in their most recent restaurant inspection. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions at Palm Bay's Waffle House #806.

A summary of violations found during inspections are listed in the Food Service Inspection boxes above. Cited are violations of Florida's sanitation and safety laws, which are based on the standards of U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Food Code.

Effective January 1, 2013, the Florida Division of Hotels and Restaurants adopted a new three-tiered violation classification system that replaces the "critical" or "non-critical" classification in use up until then. The new system uses the terms "High Priority," "Intermediate" and "Basic" which better define violation information for consumers, making it easier to understand.

In general, High Priority violations are those which could contribute directly to a foodborne illness or injury. Although the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) uses the term "High Priority", varying degrees of severity and potential risk to the public require inspectors to assess each situation in determining the appropriate action. In addition, while Waffle House #806 may have multiple violations, the inspectors' training and judgment formulate the overall result of the inspection to ensure public health and safety.

Intermediate violations are those which, if not addressed, could lead to risk factors that contribute to foodborne illness or injury. Basic violations are those which are considered best practices to implement.

Formally, Critical violations were those that, if not corrected, were more likely to contribute directly to food contamination, illness or environmental damage. Noncritical violations did not directly relate to foodborne illness risk, but were preventive measures that included practices and procedures which effectively controled environmental conditions. Left uncorrected, noncritical violations could undermine the overall food safety program of an establishment and lead to the development of critical violations.

While most establishments correct all violations in a timely manner (often during the inspection), the division's procedures are designed to compel compliance with all violations through follow-up visits, administration action or closure when necessary.

Violations listed refer to the revelant section of Florida regulation that has been observed to be deficient during the inspection. Each establishment must comply with the language of the inspection statement. For purposes of enforcement and compliance, the DBPR recognizes the status as printed on the inspection form, although the severity of the violation observed may warrant additional action regardless of its "High Priority/Intermediate/Basic" or "critical/noncritical" designation.
