Madison County Restaurant Inspections

Food Service Sanitarians inspect licensed food service operators and retail food establishments for proper food storage, handling, preparation and serving. Each year, Public Health sanitarians conduct 600 inspections at more than 300 facilities, including restaurants, grocery stores, school cafeterias, daycare centers, festivals and more.

Keep in mind that any inspection report is a snapshot of the day and time of the inspection. On any other day, an establishment could have fewer or more violations than noted on the day of the report. An inspection report may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions within an establishment. It is also important to note that a violation at an operation which is part of a restaurant chain indicates a problem only at that particular location. In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that a complex, full service food operation can routinely be violation free.

Sanitarians inspect restaurants and food establishments for compliance with Ohio’s Uniform Food Safety Code, including proper food storage, handling, preparation and serving. Food Code violations are broken down into two categories: critical and non-critical. Critical violations are items that, if in noncompliance, are more likely than other violations to contribute to food contamination, illness or an environmental health hazard. Examples of critical violations include food obtained from an unsafe source, inadequate cooking, improper holding, contaminated equipment, and poor personal hygiene. Non-critical violations cover such things as dirty floors, lack of hair restraints, and open waste receptacles.
