scores from consumers. it is featuring a new alert urging customers to call the city to complain. but health officials say the new program isn't hiding any information as restaurants have to make improvements in order to earn their new score. it officially goes live later today is will impact 60 of the worst rated restaurants. watch all our investigations in the series and learn about other loopholes allows restaurants to keep their past violations secret. nbcbayarea.com. thank you. if you have a tip for our investigative, give them a call. 888-996-tips. or send an e-mail to thethe unit @nbcbayarea.com. the coast guard crews are scouring the area near the
