The Pulaski County Health Center Environmental Public Health Specialist (EPHS) staff conducts Food Establishments Inspections under the PCHC Consumer Food Safety Regulations. Our goal in the Environmental Public Health section is to Prevent, Promote and Protect Public Health within Pulaski County.
A single inspection should not be used to evaluate a food service establishment. Looking at the series of inspections over time gives a more accurate picture of the food establishment's commitment to food safety and sanitation.
This database lists all violations and inspection comments. The database contains only inspections from 2012 to present. If you would like to view previous inspections, they are available in the office. Food service establishments are inspected on a routine basis and are unannounced.
Critical item violations are denoted under the Critical items section. Critical item violations are serious violations and are a focus of the inspection for correction. They may be corrected at the time of the inspection or may require a re-inspection depending on the nature of the violation. (The food inspection reports have been updated to replace the terminology from "Critical" to "Priority" and "Non-Critical" to "Core".)
Anytime a food service establishment is found to pose an imminent health threat to the public, authoritative staff will issue a close order to the Regulatory Authority to close the facility unless the facility voluntarily closes and corrects the imminent health issue.
Inspections are public record, and the detailed inspection records are available for examination a the Health Center office at 101 12th Street, Crocker, MO 65452, during our regular hours, Monday 7am-5pm and Tuesday - Friday 8am-4pm.
