RESTAURANT INSPECTIONS

By Carlie Kollath/NEMS Daily Journal

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 Aug. 1 and Wednesday.
The facilities are listed as they are in the MSDH system, even if there are typos. To search MSDH’s web system, users have to enter the name of the restaurant as it appears in the system.
A’s
Latin Quaters Restaurant & Lounge (124 W. Main St.)
B’s
New China (2218-D W. Main St.): Monday. Corrected on site and now in compliance: certified manager; food in good condition. safe and unadulterated; proper date marking and disposition.
C’s
none

The health department’s disclaimer:
“If in doubt about any facility, call the responsible health department. Data are for informational purposes, not enforcement.”
