|Welcome to the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department food establishment inspection information web page. This site provides information regarding establishment inspections, definitions, and violations cited with short violation descriptions.|
Only inspections that have resulted in the issuance of a Food Enforcement Notice (FEN) are listed. If you search for a food establishment and no inspection is listed, it has not been issued a Food Enforcement Notice in the past three years. An establishment may be issued an FEN if:
1. A critical item violation or violations are found that pose an immediate and substantial hazard to public health. These critical violations must be corrected immediately.
2. A pattern of declining sanitation level and an increase in the number of violations over the last three routine inspections has occurred.
3. A pattern of repeat non-critical item violations related to basic sanitation or cleaning over the last three routine inspections has occurred.
4. There is repeat non-compliance with Food Manager Permit or Food Handler Permit requirements.
5. They were issued an Notice of Violation for the same critical item violations on the previous routine inspection.
An FEN may be issued as a warning, suspension, or closure depending on the severity of the risks posed to the public’s health. FENs may be appealed.
Please remember that any inspection report is a “snapshot” of the day and time of the inspection. On any given day, an establishment could have more or fewer violations than noted here. Thus, the inspection results may not be representative of the overall food safety of an establishment. Also, at the time of the inspection, violations are recorded but are often corrected on-the-spot prior to the inspector leaving the establishment.
Food Enforcement Notices can be appealed. During the appeal process, the original enforcement notice will be listed until a final determination has been made.
