Kansas Restaurant Inspection Results Available Online
TOPEKA – A website will assist Kansans who want to know how restaurants they frequent fare during state food safety inspections.
The website,http://www.ksda.gov/food_safety/content/336, allows visitors to search for and view inspection results based on business name, county, city or inspection date.
“The inspections are a snapshot of the conditions our inspectors document at the time of their unannounced inspection,” said Kansas Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Lodging Program Manager Steve Moris.
The Kansas Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Lodging program promotes public safety by regulating lodging facilities and the production, distribution and storage of food products in Kansas. The program inspects grocery stores, restaurants, convenience stores, schools, senior meal sites, mobile food units, food wholesalers and warehouses, food processors, food manufacturers and lodging facilities.
Restaurants and other food facilities in Kansas are inspected at least once a year. While the inspection reports provide information about conditions inspectors found on a given day, the department encourages people to look at the inspection history of a facility to get a broader picture of its track record.
The inspection report website existed in the past, but had not been updated since an internal inspection system upgrade in May. For more information about the Kansas Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Lodging program, visit http://www.ksda.gov/food_safety/.
