Every year, the Washington Health Department assigns in-state restaurants  scores based on their health inspection report of the restaurants they review. As stated on their website, Washington has adopted the 2009 FDA Food Code. The code, which was developed with extensive input from members of the food service industry, the scientific community and food safety regulators throughout the country, is the same one that is used by most states in the creation of their food rules.

There are 418 possible points on the report, and contrary to the way tests are normally structured, the lower the score, the better. A zero is a perfect score.

The inspections cover a range of areas, from employee health to the proper use of utensils. The scores are divided into red and blue sections, with red indicating high risk factors and blue indicating low risk factors. In total, there are 50 different areas they check. Here are the scores for the food vendors in Cheney.
