Food Facility Inspections
- Last Updated: 5.17.16
The Anne Arundel County Department of Health inspects restaurants and other food service facilities routinely to monitor the sanitary and physical conditions at each establishment.
Inspectors closely evaluate nine critical food safety items, which are those most likely to contribute to foodborne illness. If a critical food safety violation is discovered, it must be either corrected immediately or the facility risks being closed.
View the current Food Service Inspection Report for a list of facilities inspected by the Department from April 1, 2016, through April 30, 2016. Of the 495 facilities inspected, 49 had critical food safety item violations that were corrected.
