There are approximately 350 restaurants in east Portland and about 3,000 in Multnomah County.
Multnomah County Health Department Environmental Health Specialists conduct unannounced inspections of food service establishments. 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 and cooling, holding and reheating temperatures.
Inspectors report observed violations that are not in compliance with Oregon Revised Statute 624 and Oregon Administrative Rule.
Priority violations unable to be corrected at the time of the inspection must be corrected within 14 days and verified by a reinspection. 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. Reinspections are not scored. Customers will find a placard on the restaurant entrance that indicates if a facility passed the last routine health inspection.
