Where the regulatory authority finds equipment used in the preparation of food products to be in a state of disrepair, unsafe or insanitary, the regulatory authority shall place a hold order on such equipment and the permit holder shall take such equipment out of use. The permit holder is prohibited from placing such unit back into service until written permission is obtained from the regulatory authority. It shall be unlawful for any person to move or alter a hold order notice or tag placed on equipment by the regulatory authority. Such equipment shall not be altered, disposed of, or destroyed without permission of the regulatory authority, except by order of a court of competent jurisdiction. On the basis of the evidence produced at any hearing or on the basis of examination in the event that no written request for a hearing has been received within ten days of the notice placing a hold order, the regulatory authority may vacate the hold order or may, by written notice, direct the permit holder to remove such equipment or bring it into compliance with the provisions of this chapter. Such order shall remain if the order is appealed to a court of competent jurisdiction within three days.
