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.
The following Lee County facilities were inspected between July 19 and Thursday.
The facilities are listed as they are in the MSDH system. The Daily Journal leaves in typos in the names because if the names are corrected, you wont be able to look up the business in the state’s web system.
