About Food Establishment Inspections

Woman holding plate of food in a restaurant There are approximately 3000 restaurants in Multnomah County. Multnomah County Health Department Environmental Health Specialists conduct unannounced inspections of food service establishments. These inspectors ensure food safety by evaluating:

  • Food worker habits and practices
  • Where food comes from and how it is stored in the restaurant
  • How food is prepared and cooked
  • Cooling, holding and reheating temperatures

Inspectors report observed violations that are not in compliance with Oregon Revised Statute 624 and Oregon Administrative Rule. This law and these rules are designed to identify violations that can contribute to foodborne illness.

Priority violations unable to be corrected at the time of the inspection must be corrected within fourteen days and verified by a re-inspection. A safe, alternative procedure must be in place until the final correction is completed.

A restaurant must receive a score of 70 to pass the inspection. Re-inspections are not scored. Customers will find a placard on the restaurant entrance that indicates if a facility passed the last routine health inspection. Look for the following placards to determine the inspection status of the facility:


About Mobile Food Units (Food Carts) Inspections

Mobile Food Units are required to follow the same Oregon Food Sanitation Rules (Oregon Administrative Rule 333) as regular restaurants. These rules ensure healthy employees, safe food preparation practices and clean environments. Although mobile food units follow the same food code, and can receive the same violations, they do not receive a number score. Critical violations not corrected during inspection must be corrected within fourteen days. A safe, alternative procedure must be in place until the final correction. Because mobile food units typically have less equipment and capacity, they may be asked to close if an alternative is not immediately available.
