New Food Code Changes in 2017! Food Code violations terms are changing from critical violation to priority violation and from non-critical violation to core violation. These new terminolgy terms will be displayed on the food establishment inspection reports starting January 2017.
Food Code violations are broken down into two categories: priority and core. Priority violations are items that, if in non-compliance, are more likely to contribute to food contamination, illness, or an environmental health hazard. Some examples of priority items include: improper holding temperatures of foods, inadequate cooking of food items, poor personal hygiene, and contaminated equipment. Examples of core items are: cleaning and maintenance of floors, walls, and ceilings, open waste receptacles, unshielded light bulbs in food preparation areas, and missing thermometers in refrigeration units for monitoring temperature.
For a more detailed description of priority and core violations please refer to the Jefferson City Food Code or contact the City of Jefferson Environmental Health Division at (573) 634-6410.
