It was cleared to reopen April 19, although the inspector saw a few dying cockroaches. During a follow-up a week later, an inspector saw three cockroaches alive, one dying and others dead, so the license was again suspended.

Non-closing note checks
Here are selected inspections at facilities that weren’t shut down but had other significant issues.
One Spot Sushi, at 10990 Foothill Blvd. Unit 110 at Rancho Cucamonga, was inspected April 25 in response to a foodborne illness complaint. He received a rating of 74/C with two critical violations. There was “heavy buildup” of pink slime and black mold in the ice machine, with condensation dripping over it in the ice. Also, a sushi chef didn’t properly clean a knife. Of the other 13 infractions, the fish cake was not safely thawed; sauce containers, take-out containers, plates, paper towels and portion cups were stored directly on the floor; and the floor was filthy with food scraps and trash. An inspector left the next day and found black spots resembling mold still inside the ice machine. Additionally, the Grade C card, which must be displayed prominently for customers, had been moved behind the store’s opening hours sign. When an inspector came back a day later, the ice maker was clean but the C grade card had moved to the bottom of the window again. The inspector put it back in its original place and warned them not to move it.

About this listing
This list is published online on Fridays. Any updates as restaurants reopen will be included in next week’s list.
All county food facilities are regularly inspected to ensure they meet health codes. A facility loses four points for each critical violation and one to three points for minor violations. An A rating (90 to 100 points) is considered “generally superior”, a B rating (80 to 89) is “generally acceptable” and a C rating (70 to 79) is “generally unacceptable” and requires a follow-up inspection . A facility will be temporarily shut down if it scores below 70 or has a critical violation that cannot be corrected immediately.
