food fare

The McLean County Health Department is in charge of food inspection in the county. Restaurant inspection scores provide a snapshot of how successfully a business meets food handling, storage, processing and service standards on a given day. Inspections are conducted one to four times each year, although all counties, including McLean County, changed the way surveys are conducted Jan. 1.

There are 29 risk factors ranging from supervision to ensuring that food additives are properly identified, stored and used. If a violation is found, it is recorded in each report.

Critical items are those violations that are more likely to contribute to food contamination, illness or other food safety hazards. They include, but are not limited to: improper food temperatures, contaminated foods, cross-contamination and poor personal hygiene.

If a food establishment is found to pose an imminent threat to public health, it is asked to discontinue operation until violations have been corrected.

The violations found during each inspection are posted on the McLean County website at: http://health.mcleancountyil.gov/582/Food-Establishment-Inspection-Scores.
