1 in 7 Home Kitchens Would Flunk Inspection

A new study indicates that one out of every seven home kitchens, if not more, would flunk the health inspections given to restaurants.

Fewer than two-thirds of home kitchens would get an “A” or “B” grade on an inspection, and 14 percent or more would fail. Ninety-eight percent of U.S. restaurants receive A or B scores.

According to USA Today:

“The study is believed to be one of the first to offer this kind of look at food safety in private homes. Food poisoning outbreaks in restaurants often get the most attention. But experts believe most illnesses may stem from meals prepared at home.”
