Eight more local eateries receive satisfactory health ratings

The eight Franklin County establishments that received health ratings during the week of January 29, 2018 through February 2, 2018, each had scores that fall into the “satisfactory compliance” range.

Health ratings are required to be prominently posted in all food/lodging establishments. Scores are graded by the Alabama Department of Public Health inspectors on a 100-point scale.

Establishments with scores of 85 to 100 are considered to be in “satisfactory compliance” and are routinely inspected. Establishments scoring between 70 and 84 will be inspected again in 60 days, and those scoring between 60 and 69 will have another follow-up within 48 hours. Any establishment scoring below 60 will be immediately closed.

Areas of inspection by ADPH include management and personnel; food storage, preparation and service; equipment; utensils; linen cleanliness; plumbing and waste; poisonous or toxic material storage; and an inspection of the physical facility or property.

The eight Franklin County businesses listed in the most recent food and lodging establishment ratings scored 89 or above, within the satisfactory compliance range.

The highest score was 100, given to the Phil Campbell Senior Center, 135 Sherry Brice Drive, Phil Campbell.
