TUPELO – The state Department of Health regularly inspects restaurants and food facilities.
The facilities are graded from A to C. “A” is the best. “C” is the equivalent of failing, but the inspection isn’t bad enough to merit the closure of the restaurant. Any restaurant with a C gets a follow-up visit within 10 days.
The following Lee County facilities were inspected between 6/5 and Monday:


North Mississippi Medical Center
North Mississippi Medical Center coffee kiosk
Queen of Ice Cream (360 Road 1160 – snowcone)
Salad Creations (by Bed Bath & Beyond)



The health department has the following disclaimer:
“Data in this system come from two very different systems. If in doubt about any facility, call the responsible health department. Data are for informational purposes, not enforcement.”
The health department also has the option of revising the reports.
