FOOD INSPECTION REPORTS

By TRAVIS WEIK - tweik@thecouriertimes.com

The Environmental Public Health Office of the Henry County Health Department conducted six routine, one complaint and six temporary inspections during the last week of July and first week of August. County inspectors identified six critical violations and seven non-critical violations during that time period.

Unless there is an immediate risk to public health and safety, Indiana regulations give business owners 10 days to review food inspection reports before releasing them to the public.

Royal Hylands Golf Club in Knightstown had one critical violation during a routine inspection July 22. The condensation line from the ice machine upstairs, the drain from the three-compartment sink and drink condensation lines in the bar all lacked the required air gap at the drain.

The Lunchbox (Sale barn) in Knightstown had two critical and two non-critical violations during a routine inspection July 27. There was a change of ownership without notice being given to the Henry County Health Department. Raw shell eggs had a measured internal temperature of 47 degrees. There was no sanitizer test kit available to test the sanitizing solution. Health inspectors observed a sink draining into a bucket and not connected to an approved sewage disposal system.

According to the Indiana State Health Department (ISHD), critical violations are “more likely than other violations to significantly contribute to food contamination, illness or environmental health hazard.” Restaurant operators are required by law to correct critical violations at the time of inspection, unless the health inspector agrees to a longer time frame to correct more complex issues.
