There are approximately 3,000 restaurants in Multnomah County and about 350 in Mid-Multnomah County.
Multnomah County Health Department Environmental Health Spets 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; and cooling, holding and reheating temperatures.
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 a restaurant’s entrance that indicates if the facility passed its last routine health inspection.
