Local public health agencies statewide conduct routine inspections of retail food establishments. These periodic inspections are generally unannounced and are conducted as part of an ongoing regulatory process to assure compliance with a food safety code or ordinance.

The retail food establishments that are inspected are facilities that store, package, prepare, serve, or vend food directly to the consumer or provides food for human consumptions such as a restaurant, caterer, grocery store, school, convenience store, farmer’s market, temporary event, etc.

Many agencies post their food safety inspection reports online. That information, if available online, may be found with the map below.

These same agencies respond to complaints about food safety concerns in these retail food establishments. A consumer should contact the local public health agency where the facility is located to file a complaint.
