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. 7 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.
The inspector at the health department has been busy this week with lots of inspections.
