My Town: Kent County Health Department names 2014 Food Safety Award winners

KENT COUNTY, Mich.—If you’re looking for a clean, safe place to dine out this weekend, the Kent County Health Department has some suggestions- 471 of them, actually.

The KCHD recently announced the winners of its 2nd annual Food Safety Awards.  This year’s 471 winners were selected from more than 1700 licensed facilities that were inspected through 2013.    To qualify, each establishment had to meet the following criteria:

  • Facility must have a certified food safety manager, if required, for year of review;
  • No repeat violations for the two routine inspections conducted during the year of review;
  • No confirmed violations of Michigan Smoke Free Law;
  • No enforcement action taken against facility for year of review;
  • No confirmed foodborne illness outbreaks linked to facility for year of review;
  • No complaints which are confirmed by inspection and determined to be a public health risk;
  •  Must not receive any Priority or Priority Foundation violations in the licensing year;
  •  Class X must have no Core Violations, Class Y must not exceed 2 Core Violations, and Class Z cannot exceed 3 Core Violations.

"Many Kent County restaurants do well in their inspections, but more than a quarter of them really go the distance,” says Adam London, administrative health officer for Kent County. “The staff feels it is important to recognize these particular locations for regularly passing inspections with few or no violations. Providing them with this award allows customers to see that the facility has established a safer cooking and serving environment.”

  • My Town Ada/Cascade
  • My Town Comstock Park
  •  My Town East Grand Rapids
  • My Town Grand Rapids Central
