LA PLATA, Md. – The Charles County Department of Health (CCDOH) has released an inspection list that identifies which facilities that have been inspected in 2019. This list is available on our website at http://www.charlescountyhealth.org/inspections/. The list provides increased transparency into the inspection process and departmental progress in the completion of routine inspections. This inspection database will be updated on a monthly basis to better inform consumers.
Our staff works tirelessly to ensure our food service establishments provide food in a safe and hygienic way, and we will continue to hold businesses accountable. Last year, three CCDOH inspectors performed over 1,000 inspections at food service facilities in Charles County. The inspections resulted in correction of both critical risk factors and good retail practices. The Department offers food safety training to food service facilities upon request to reinforce safe food handling practices.
An electronic complaint form is being developed, and will be available on our website in the coming weeks. Complaints regarding unsafe food handling or unsanitary conditions of food service facilities are investigated promptly and can be reported by calling (301) 609-6751.
