Kitchen inspections for Oct. 5-10
Placeholder Image

The following are among the food service establishments inspected from Oct. 5-11 by the Hall County Environmental Health Department.

Food service establishments are given a letter grade that coincides with a percentile: “A” (90-100), “B” (80-89), “C” (70-79), “U” 69 and below. Inspections (frequency of) a food service establishment are conducted based on risk categorization.

The risk type is determined by the menu items served, the food preparation processed performed, and the previous food safety history in the food service establishment.

A new food service establishment that has never served food must score 100 (A) to receive a food service permit to operate. When a restaurant changes ownership, a new food service permit must be issued.

To be issued a food service permit for a change of ownership, the establishment must score a 95 (A) or above with all Foodborne Illness Risk factors and Public Health Interventions in compliance.

Permits must be posted in public view at all times.

Food service establishments with drive-thru windows will also be required to have the top one-third of a copy of the most current inspection report visible through each window allowing customers to easily read the score, date of inspection and establishment information, in addition to the copy posted inside the establishment.

Copies of the rules are available at the Hall County Environmental health Office.

The rules and regulations are also available online.

To register a complaint against a food service establishment, contact the Hall County Environmental Health Department at 770-531-3973.
