Health inspection scores March 22, 2013

Mar. 22, 2013 @ 10:38 AM

The Department of Health is responsible for regulation of food service establishments in Tennessee. The law requires that restaurants have an unannounced inspection at least once every six months to determine if they are in compliance with applicable rules and regulations at the time of inspection.

In addition to routine inspections, unannounced inspections are also conducted in response to complaints. Tennessee uses a 44-item inspection sheet with a maximum of 100 points. Thirteen items are considered critical. Critical items, found out of compliance, must be corrected within 10 days. Latest inspections:
