Marion County Health Department Food Inspections Web Site

The Marion County Health Department Food Inspection Web Site has been designed to provide food safety inspection information to consumers about retail food establishments in Marion County. Restaurants, grocery stores, taverns, schools, and other food operations that serve food to the public are licensed and inspected by the Health Department.

All licensed food establishments are governed by the Indiana Administrative Code, 410 IAC 7-24, Retail Food Establishment Sanitation Requirements, as well as by Chapters 8 and 19 of the Code of the Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County. The primary purpose of these regulations is to prevent food-borne illnesses. Detailed requirements contained in the regulations fall within the following general categories: food employee knowledge, health status, and personal hygiene; storage, handling, and preparation of food; condition of food equipment and of the facility.

Environmental health specialists conduct periodic, unannounced, inspections in order to evaluate compliance with food safety regulations. When specialists find violations, they document the problems in a written report that is given to the food service operator. The most current report and a record of each inspection is available on this web site.

Specialists provide food safety education, do timely follow-up inspections to ensure corrective action has been taken, and work with operators to prevent future problems. MCHD staff also responds to consumer complaints, and promptly investigates all reported cases of food-related illnesses.

In order to view an inspection report you will first need to search for the food establishment, using the business name (or partial name) or the address. For a more general search, view all facilities either in a particular category or in a geographical area of the county. Once having found a facility, click on a link to the inspection report. Other features include mapping functions to find the exact location of the facility, information about smoking/non-smoking status, a glossary of food safety terms, and the entire food code.

You may choose either to read the latest inspection for a particular facility or to look at a recent history of inspections. By law, The Marion County Health Department must wait until ten days have elapsed from the date of the inspection before making the inspection report available to the public. Disclaimer: the reports describe only the conditions that specialists found on the indicated inspection dates, and may not reflect current conditions within the food establishment.
