Food Safety Inspections

The Licking County Health Department conducts inspections all the Food Service Operations (FSOs) and Retail Food Establishments (RFEs) in Licking County. FSOs consist of traditional restaurants and school cafeterias where the food is eaten on-site, while RFEs normally consist of convenience stores, carryout and delivery only restaurants and supermarkets. We conduct a minimum of two inspections at every FSO and RFE in the county each year. Our staff also inspects mobile FSOs and RFEs that are selling food at festivals and other events around the county. This includes concession trailers and food trucks. Our sanitarians perform over 1,100 food safety inspections each year.

We are pleased to be able to provide our inspection reports to the public on our website. We hope you find the reports useful, and please do not hesitate to contact us at (740) 349-6535 or with any questions or concerns. We also inspect vending machines that sell sandwiches and other foods that must be kept at the proper temperature in order to remain safe to eat. We inspect temporary food service operations which are commonly set up at a special event for a limited time. Vending and Temporary inspections are not available on-line at this time.
