Auckland Council says there are currently 26 eateries with a D or E-grade ratings. Reasons include pests, poor cleaning and unhygienic food storage.
"A D-grade means that faults that are not a critical risk to food safety were found on the premises and intervention by a food safety officer was required," a council spokesperson told Newshub.
"E-grades are issued to businesses with critical food safety risks. When a critical risk to food safety is found, the business will immediately close and will reopen when the critical food safety risk has been addressed.
"For example, if a food business is found to have extensive cockroach infestation, it will not be permitted to reopen, unless the cockroach infestation has been satisfactorily mitigated."
