Our Environmental Public Health Specialist (EPHS) conducts Food Establishment Inspections under the Missouri Food Code. Use the menu below to view a history of health inspections for facilities in Shannon County. The facility name will be followed by the year inspected along with a letter that denotes the type of inspection performed: I = Initial inspection of a new facility, A = Annual inspection of an established facility, F = Follow-up after an unacceptable inspection and C = Inspection performed in response to a complaint. Schools are inspected twice per year. The second inspection will be followed by a “2”.
Important things to note:
- A single inspection should not be used to evaluate a food service establishment. Looking at the series of inspections over time gives a more accurate picture of the food establishment’s commitment to food safety and sanitation.
- This database lists all violations and inspection comments. The database was created in April 2011 and will be updated monthly. Food service establishments are inspected on a routine basis and are unannounced.
- Priority item violations are denoted under the Priority Items section. Priority item violations are serious violations and are a focus of the inspection for correction. They may be corrected at the time of the inspection or may require a re-inspection depending on the nature of the violation.
- Anytime a food service establishment is found to pose an imminent health threat to the public, our staff will contact the Department of Health and Senior Services for a closing order unless the facility voluntarily closes and corrects the imminent health issue.
