About Food Service Establishment Inspections

The City of St. Peters Health Department conducts inspections of all food service establishments in the City. These establishments include restaurants, caterers, schools, delicatessens, temporary and permanent food stands, taverns, day cares, bakeries, and frozen dessert stands. The City's Public Health Sanitarian conducts these unannounced inspections. During an inspection, food workers' practices are evaluated. These practices include the manner at which food is received and stored, how foods are processed, and the temperatures used to cook, hold and reheat foods. Any violation observed during the inspection is recorded on the inspection sheet.

Violations are assigned points depending on its severity (2 points for core violations, and 5 points for critical violations). The weighted points are added together, and then subtracted from 100. This becomes the rating score.

A "+" sign is added to the rating score when the food establishment has their employees immunized for hepatitis A (i.e., A+, B+, or C+).

A follow-up inspection is usually conducted within 10 days to verify that critical violations have been corrected. When critical violations have not been corrected during a re-inspection or if the operation of a food service establishment constitutes a substantial hazard to the public, the Health Official may, without warning, notice or hearing, suspend any license to operate the food service establishment.
