Each of the 400+ licensed food service facilities across the Western Upper Peninsula are inspected by our Sanitarians on a routine basis. Inspections focus on maintaining sanitary conditions and safe food handling practices. Critical and noncritical violations found on inspections are required to be corrected within a set time period. Inspections are also required before a Temporary Food License can be issued. All licensed facilities must follow the Michigan Modified 2009 Food Code.
Wondering how your favorite restaurant handles food safety? The Western UP Health Department makes inspection results for local restaurants available to the public. Reports provide information on the conditions observed by a sanitarian at the time of inspection, and may not reflect corrective actions or current conditions.
