5 East Haven eateries cited for priority health violations

EAST HAVEN — The East Shore District Health Department cited five local businesses for the most critical level of health violations during routine inspections in November, records show.

Brazzas & Grill tallied the most priority item violations with seven, followed by Foliage Chinese Food and the Gulf gas station on Coe Avenue (three), M&R Variedades Latinas (two) and Stop & Shop (one). Priority item violations are the most severe of the three violations and must be corrected within 72 hours, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Food Code, which Connecticut adopted in 2023

The health department found priority item violations at four East Haven businesses in October.

Brazzas & Grill at 430 Main St. had seven priority item violations across two November inspections. During a previous inspection on Oct. 26, the Mediterranean restaurant voluntarily agreed to close for the remainder of the day after a sanitarian wrote in their report that they observed a “significant amount of violations.”
