Food Services

The Bullitt County Health Department inspects businesses that prepare, sale, or serve food to the public. Unannounced inspections are performed on each facility at least twice a year. In addition to twice a year, inspections will be conducted if complaints are received. The Kentucky Retail Food code defines a satisfactory inspection score as an 85% or above with no critical violations cited. If a facility fails to obtain a passing score, the business is ordered in writing to correct violations and a follow-up inspection is scheduled. Businesses that fail to correct these violations are subject to further enforcement action.

Kentucky's Food Code reflects the 2013 FDA Food Code
