Establishments requiring inspection in the Village are inspected routinely and unannounced based on the risk assessment classification assigned them. Cook County Department of Public Health oversees these inspections along with plan reviews for new food service facilities, construction site inspections and health related complaints within the Village. Risk assessments are based on the State of Illinois Food Service Sanitation Code. Inspection classifications are as follows:
Category I – 3 yearly inspections
Category II – 2 yearly inspections
Category III – 1 yearly inspection
Inspections are based on CDC guidelines that check five food safety risk categories – improper holding temperatures (hot & cold), improper cooking temperatures, employee health & hygiene, utensil & equipment contamination and food sources.
