I don't know if anyone is saying they have major healthcode violations. As has been mentioned, there are many other things that would necessitate closing the kitchens that are not health violations per se.
Again, needing to shut down water or waste systems for maintenance, discovering that fire suppression systems or equipment is not up to code, exhaust system fans are failing to operate to specifications, gas lines need to be replaced, etc.
Those are not things you would see on the typical health dept. inspection reports, but are important issues that would be need to addressed promptly.
I agree. I was just staying that if it was health code related, the local media would be reporting it.
