Food carts may soon get a letter grade

That street hot dog could soon come with a grade of A, B or C along with the mustard and sauerkraut.

The City Council Health Committee on Tuesday unanimously approved a bill requiring the Health Department to post sanitary grades for food carts, just like it does for restaurants.

Street food vendors already get inspected and are subject to fines. But unlike eateries, they don’t have to display the results.

“Everyone who handles food should be subject to the same rules,” said City Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz (D-Queens), the bill’s sponsor. “People have a right to know if the [eating] conditions are really sanitary.”
