SAN DIEGO: Food trucks to get letter grades

(AP) – San Diego County has rolled out letter grades for hundreds of food trucks and carts.

The North County Times (
) says the A, B and C grading system was introduced this week,
replacing a pass/fail system. Health inspectors gave the first grades on
Tuesday to a smoothie cart and a burrito truck.

The idea is for consumers to have a quick way of
judging whether their grub is safe. An A-grade means the truck passed
inspection, B means there were problems, and C means it failed.

Brick & mortar restaurants have long had letter grades from health authorities

It may take two months to grade all 550 mobile food vendors in the county.
