???'s What happens when a restaurant fails? Are they shut down until a passed re-inspection? Why is it a problem that food in the freezer is frozen? I used to feel bad that I can't afford to eat out that often, not so much after reading these reports each week!

They will be reinspected in ten days. I don't think they are shut down at this point. And I've seen the "food frozen solid" many times; not completely sure why that's a problem!
