Kent County honors cleanest restaurants with Food Safety Awards

KENT COUNTY, Mich.—Where are the safest places to eat in Kent County?

The county health department is answering that question with the 2013 Food Safety Awards.   The agency whittled down the list of 1,654 eligible restaurants to just 269 facilities, based on routine restaurant and food service inspections over the past year.  Under the county’s criteria, restaurants that earn the award must have a certified food safety manager, no confirmed violations of the Michigan Smoke Free Law and no confirmed foodborne illness outbreaks during the year.

“Restaurant and food service facility safety is a very common concern for residents in Kent County,” says Adam London, Administrative Health Officer for the Kent County Health Department. “Many Kent County restaurants do well in their inspections, but our staff feels it is important to single out these particular locations for being above average, by regularly passing inspections with little or no violations. We felt we should reward them somehow for a job well-done.”
