DETROIT, June 12, 2024 ~ It’s been six years in the making, and now Detroit restaurants will be required to display a color-coded card indicating they comply with health department inspections.

Under the ordinance, Detroit eateries in compliance with their inspection by the city’s health department will display a green place card near their front door or register, with restaurants that were closed by the health department will be required to display red place cards. The “Dining with Confidence” ordinance was spear-headed by Detroit City Council member Scott Benson, who said this will reduce the incidences of food-borne illnesses and instill confidence in consumers. Restaurants have six months to comply with the new ordinance.
