There are 7 local restaurants that had too many red marks on a recent health food inspection and have to be reinspected. The Health Department says that any business that gets more then a score of 25 red marks on an inspection basically fails and needs to be inspected again until they receive less then 10 points according to news reports and past records on their website.

The good news is the 8 other local businesses scored perfect on their inspections:

-1- Carniceria La Cabana #3, 4311 W. Clearwater Ave., Kennewick -2- El Marino (Mobile), 200 E. Lewis St., Pasco -3- Kennewick Babe Ruth League, 608 W. Eighth Ave., Kennewick -4- Ki-Be High School Kitchen, 1205 Horne Drive, Benton City -5- Ready and Out Restaurant, 1827 Wine Country Road, Prosser -6- Walter Clore Wine & Culinary Center, 2140 Wine Country Road, Prosser -7- Walter Clore Wine & Culinary Center Tasting Room -8- McCary’s Meats, 6880 Road 170, Basin City
