Since San Diego Food Poisoning investigations and failed restaurant health inspections are so common, San Diego county has moved forward with a new ordinance mandating that all San Diego food trucks be required to post inspection letter grades.

County officials say they inspect more than a thousand mobile food operations, but until now operators were not required to display the results.  Under the new ordinance, the food trucks will get decals instead of cards so the grades can’t be transferred among trucks.

Supervisor Ron Roberts tells 10News, “I want to ensure people here — whether they’re going to a restaurant in the conventional sense or a mobile food truck — that they can do that with confidence and know that those facilities have been inspected and certified.”
