Department of Health announces retail food inspections in May

The Jackson County Health Department’s retail food establishment inspections for May 2022 were recently released.

Critical violations are defined as a provision of Sanitation Requirements for Retail Food Establishments, Title 410 IAC 7-24, which, if found to be non-compliant, is more likely than other violations to contribute significantly to the food contamination, disease or environmental health hazard. Example: hot foods not held at 135°F or hotter, cold foods at or below 41°F or contaminated food contact surfaces.

Non-critical violations are provisions of Sanitation Requirements for Retail Food Establishments, Title 410 IAC 7-24, which, if not in compliance, are not likely to contribute significantly to food contamination, disease or environmental health risks, but are areas of concern. Examples: Do not leave hair clips or mops in a mop bucket rather than letting them air dry.

Repeat violations are issued when a follow-up inspection reveals that a previous problem has not been corrected and the establishment continues to be non-compliant and unsafe.
