Campbell County health and food inspections (8/1/22 – 8/4/22)

Gillette, Wyo. — The Consumer Health Services Division of the Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) conducts inspections of retail food establishments throughout Wyoming (where there is not a local health department who does inspections) to help ensure safety of Wyoming residents.

Campbell County establishments are inspected at least once a year by the WDA. All of these reports are made public and can be found on their website. It will only include the routine inspections and not the follow-up or other kinds of inspections.

According to WDA, establishments are either in or out of compliance with a non-critical (non-food related) or a critical violation (which can cause a food born illness).

Derek Grant, the Public Information Officer at WDA, explains that while they are looking for deficiencies, the organization’s “main goal is to educate the business.”

Their report is made to help the businesses understand unsafe practices and ways to correct them.

Grant says, “Any violation makes the business be out of compliance, but violations can be on different levels.” This means that not being in compliance does not necessarily mean that the business is unsafe.

Inspections are a “snapshot” in time and the violation are often corrected before the inspector leaves the facility. Dependent on the severity of the violation, the business will have any where between 10 to 45 days to correct it.

Any serious violations or notable quotes will be included in summary notes below, but the full report for each restaurant can be found at the WDA website, where they publish all of their current information.
