* Depending on the degree of risk for foodborne disease as determined by type of food prepared, preparation method and other criteria, restaurants, markets, caterers and bakeries can be inspected by the Health Department's Bureau of Food Control three or two times a year or once every two years. Mobile food vendors are inspected once a year. Inspectors also investigate complaints about an eatery. If a facility violates food safety regulations, it will receive a notice. Failure to comply will result in a suspension until the problems are corrected.
