The violations can range from general sanitation and maintenance to violations that have a direct connection to preventing foodborne illness to violations in procedures by maintenance that control the risk of foodborne illness, such as documentation, labeling, personnel training and equipment. During and after inspections, food vendors were allowed to correct violations to improve scores prior to a follow-up inspection.
