The Environmental Public Health Office of the Henry County Health Department conducted four temporary inspections and one water loss inspections during the third week of July. County inspectors identified one critical violation during that time period.
Wendy’s in New Castle had one critical violation during a water loss inspection July 21. Henry County health inspectors found the establishment in operation during the loss of water. Boil water precautions were ordered once the water utility was restored.
The Lemon, Aunt Christy’s Corndog #3, Sugar Shack and Elephant Ear at the New Castle Summer Fest at Kalpritt Mall had no violations during temporary inspections July 21.
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.
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.
