Welcome to the Calhoun County Health Department food establishment inspection information page. This site provides information regarding definitions and establishment inspections.


Please remember that any inspection report is a "snapshot" of the day and time of the inspection.  On any given day, an establishment could have more or fewer violations than noted here.  Thus, the inspection results may not be representative of the overall food safety of an establishment.  Also, at the time of inspection, violations are recorded but are often corrected on-the-spot prior to the inspector leaving the establishment.


Throughout the year, the Calhoun County Health Department inspects a variety of food service establishments.  Food establishments are inspected on an annual schedule based on risk categories set forth by the Illinois Food Service Sanitation Code.  The risk categories are determined by the complexity of food preparation at each facility.  Routine Inspections are conducted unannounced.  The Food Service Sanitation Code has divided violations into two categories; critical and non-critical.  The categories are predetermined by the Food Service Sanitation Code.  The department is publishing both types of violations.
