Local restaurants receive satisfactory health ratings


The three Franklin County establishments that received health ratings during the week of March 26, 2018, through March 30, 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 three Franklin County businesses listed in the most recent food and lodging establishment ratings scored 90 or above, within the satisfactory compliance range.

The highest score was 97, received by the Bricks Restaurant and Inn, 114 N. Jackson Ave., Russellville.

Inspections of Franklin County businesses, with critical item violations noted, resulted in the following scores:

--Little Caesar's Pizza, 13655 Hwy. 43, Russellville, 90. (No soap at hand sink).

--Vulcan Food Mart, 28485 Hwy. 24, Russellville, 95. (Cooked food in cooler no date marked).

Of the nine inspections done in Colbert County from March 26, 2018 through March 30, 2018, one restaurant scored below the satisfactory range. JJ's, 8225 Hwy. 72, Cherokee, scored an 80. (Toxic item mislabeled; hose attached without backflow protection; chicken tenders sitting out at 47-49 degrees).

The high score for the week in Colbert County was 99, received by Sheila's Sweet Shop, 9809 Lair Lane, Cherokee.
