City inspectors temporarily suspended the permits for seven Boston last month, though two have re-opened after correcting the problems. 

Temporary suspensions are issued when an imminent health hazard exists due to fire, flood, extended interruption of electrical or water service, sewage backup, misuse of poisonous or toxic materials, onset of an apparent foodborne illness outbreak, gross unsanitary occurrence or condition, or other circumstances that may endanger the public health, according to the city Inspection Services Department website.

Establishments are allowed to re-open when the violations are corrected or if the condition no longer exists.
