7/1/2013 1:00:00 PM Health Dept. inspections help keep the public safe
The JC Health Department has released results of inspections carried out in May. Such visits to establishments such as schools, restaurants and groceries, help ensure compliance with state guidelines to keep the public safe. Critical violations could expose one to illness and typically must be corrected immediately or within days. Non-critical violations, if not corrected, could lead to critical violations or make critical violations more likely to occur. The chart at the very end defines critical violations. Pre-operational Inspections No violations were found at A&E Maschino Farms or at TK Pizza and Fish Supplies. Routine Inspections No violations were found at Jackson/Jennings Co-op Fast Stop, Family Dollar Stores, Senior Resource Center of JC or at Good Samaritan Food Pantry. Non-Critical Violations Non-critical violations, which could lead to more serious violations if not corrected, were found at Pizza King (3 violations), Fast Max at 104 N State St (3), Butlerville Grocery (1).
