At least once a year, the Niagara County Health Department inspects every establishment in the county that serves food.

Those considered high-risk -- because they serve children or the elderly, or serve foods that require a lot of processing, or are prepared hours or days before serving -- are inspected at least twice a year.

Exemplary establishments receive no rating. Violations are classified as critical problems that could lead to food-borne illness, which must be remedied immediately, or problems involving sanitation, design, maintenance and cleanliness, which must be corrected by the inspector's next visit.
