Restaurant closures, inspections in San Bernardino County, Feb. 25-March 3 – San Bernardino Sun

Here are the restaurants and other food facilities that San Bernardino County health inspectors temporarily shut down because of imminent health hazards between Feb. 25 and March 3, 2022. If no reopening date is mentioned, the agency had not listed that facility as reopened as of this publication.

Fishbone Seafood, 980 Ontario Mills Drive Suite E, Ontario

  • Closed: Feb. 28
  • Grade: Not graded
  • Reason: Operating without a valid health permit. During a routine inspection in October, the inspector saw that the restaurant had changed the menu and added equipment including a fryer, grill and refrigerators, which the restaurant had said it wouldn’t do when it filled out a transfer of ownership form. In mid-February, the owner submitted plans for review, and was told they could stay open only if they could make a temporary change to their menu and discontinue using the unapproved cooking equipment until those plans were verified. When an inspector visited Feb. 28 and saw the facility was still using that equipment, the restaurant was shut down. The inspector also noted that the restaurant was allowing dine-in service despite not having a restroom available for customers, which the operator had been told in October is not permitted.

Non-closure inspections of note

Here are selected inspections at facilities that weren’t closed but had other significant issues.

The Little Caesars Pizza at 1375 E. 4th St. in Ontario was inspected March 1 and received a grade of 80/B with two critical violations. There was no hot water when the inspector arrived, but the water heater was turned on right away. Also, a gallon of barbecue sauce that needed to be refrigerated had been left out on a prep table for about 24 hours. Among the nine other violations, a bug zapper had been set up over the food prep area, employees didn’t know hot holding temperatures or proper dishwashing procedures, and food debris was built up on the shelves storing food as well as the floors and walls.

Mariscos Mi Lindo Sinaloa, at 483 W. Valley Blvd. in Rialto, was inspected Feb. 24 in response to a foodborne illness complaint. It received a grade of 86/B with one critical violation: Some flour and batter that raw shrimp had been mixed into had been left at room temperature. Among the seven other violations, the restaurant wasn’t adequately keeping track of how long sushi rice was left at room temperature, and tortilla chips were being stored in an unlined cardboard box. Additionally, the B grade card from the restaurant’s last inspection — it scored an 81 in December 2020 — had been moved to the office from the spot where it was required to be posted. This was the restaurant’s second consecutive B grade and third since 2019.

About this list

This list is published online on Fridays. Any updates as restaurants are reopened will be included in next week’s list.

All food facilities in the county are routinely inspected to ensure they meet health codes. A facility loses four points for each critical violation and one to three points for minor violations. An A grade (90 to 100 points) is considered “generally superior,” a B grade (80 to 89) is “generally acceptable” and a C grade (70 to 79) is “generally unacceptable” and requires a follow-up inspection. A facility will be temporarily closed if it scores below 70 or has a critical violation that can’t be corrected immediately.
