The Frederick County Health Department inspects restaurants and other food service facilities routinely to monitor the sanitary and physical conditions at each establishment. Each year more than 2,000 inspections are conducted in the county.
Inspectors closely evaluate nine critical food safety items, which are those most likely to contribute to foodborne illness. If a critical food safety violation is discovered, it must be either corrected immediately or the facility risks being closed. View the current Food Facility Closings Report below for a list of facilities inspected by the Department.
