INSPECTION PROCESS

  • Inspection Frequency Facility inspections are conducted one to four times per year, depending on the complexity of a facility's menu and their potential risk of a foodborne illness. Inspection reports will become available throughout the year, as inspections are conducted per the frequency requirements.
  • Violations (Two types of violations may be cited)
    • Critical Violations Violations of the Food Regulations, which, if left uncorrected, are more likely than other violations to directly contribute to food contamination or illness. Examples include improper temperature control of food, and the improper cooking, cooling, refrigeration or reheating of food. Such problems can create environments that cause pathogens (bacteria/viruses) to grow and thrive, which put consumers at risk for food-borne illness.
    • Non-Critical Violations Violations not directly related to the cause of foodborne illness, however if uncorrected, could affect the operation of the facility and lead to critical violations. Examples include a lack of facility cleanliness and maintenance, or improper cleaning of nonfood-contact equipment.
  • Types of Inspections
    • Standard This inspection is unannounced to the facility. A local health department sanitarian will conduct a complete inspection covering all items in the regulations for compliance.
    • Thirty Day Inspection This is a standard inspection that must be conducted no more than thirty days after a license is issued to a new Food Service Operation or Retail Food Establishment.
    • Pre-license Inspection This inspection is not required, but may be conducted by the local health department prior to issuing a license to a new Food Service Operation or Retail Food Establishment. The purpose of this inspection is to provide consultation and education to the operator.
    • Critical Control Point (CCP) This inspection may be scheduled or unannounced. A sanitarian will spend time reviewing a facility’s food processes that may directly contribute to food contamination or illness and educates the facility on proper procedures.
    • Process Review (PR) This inspection may be scheduled or unannounced. This type of inspection is similar to a CCP inspection; however the inspections are conducted in facilities such as grocery stores or convenience stores. The inspection will focus on a specific process that may directly contribute to food contamination or illness.
    • Follow-up Inspection This is an inspection for the specific purpose of re-inspecting items that were not in compliance at the time of the standard, CCP and/or PR inspection. These inspections are scheduled.
    • Complaint This is an unannounced inspection conducted as a result of a complaint received by a local health department. The specifics of the complaint will be evaluated and discussed with the person in charge of the facility.

Another Credit Card Scam

Morrisey Warns Bogus Customer Service Lines
By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

The latest Scam AlertPatrick J. Morrisey involves bogus credit card customer service telephone numbers.

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is warning Mountain State consumers to make sure they are dialing the correct customer service number for their debit and credit cards.
 
A new scam preys upon consumers who turn to the Internet for solutions to trouble with their credit or debit cards. The consumer may find that a number posted online leads them to a recorded message, which prompts the cardholder to enter their personal information.
 
"Scammers try every trick in the book to bilk consumers out of their money," Morrisey says. "These scammers are going as far as creating telephone numbers similar to those customer service lines with the hope of tricking a consumer looking for help."
 
Recently, the Better Business Bureau issued an alert that scammers are purchasing phone numbers very similar to those of actual customer service numbers used by debit and credit card companies. These scammers also place ads online promoting their number as a customer service hotline.
 
To avoid calling fake phone numbers consumers can follow a few tips:

  • Only use the number located on your debit and credit cards.
  • Look for the company’s official site and number.
  • Be wary of using information and telephone numbers placed in pop-up ads online.

If you believe you have been the victim of a scam, please telephone the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 800-368-8808 or, to file a report online, please visit www.wvago.gov.

NHTSA Airbag Recall Expands

Estimated 23.4 Million Inflators Are Affected
By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

In an historic announcement, The United States Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued two orders designed to protect the traveling public from defective Takata air bag inflators, November 3rd, 2015. The orders impose the largest civil penalty in NHTSA’s history for Takata’s violations of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, and for the first time use NHTSA’s authority to accelerate recall repairs to millions of affected vehicles. The actions also prioritize recalls so the greatest safety risks are addressed first, and set deadlines for future recalls of other Takata inflators that use a suspect propellant unless they are proved to be safe.

"For years, Takata has built and sold defective products, refused to acknowledge the defect, and failed to provide full information to NHTSA, its customers, or the public," says Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. "The result of that delay and denial has harmed scores of consumers and caused the largest, most complex safety recall in history. Today’s actions represent aggressive use of NHTSA’s authority to clean up these problems and protect public safety."

The Consent Order issued to Takata imposes a record civil penalty of $200 million and requires the company to phase out the manufacture and sale of inflators that use phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate propellant, which is believed to be a factor in explosive ruptures that have caused 7 deaths and nearly 100 injuries in the United States. The Consent Order also lays out a schedule for recalling all Takata ammonium nitrate inflators now on the roads unless the company can prove they are safe or can show it has determined why its inflators are prone to rupture.

As part of NHTSA’s Consent Order to Takata, the company has admitted that it was aware of a defect but failed to issue a timely recall, a violation of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. In connection with the Consent Order, NHTSA also issued findings that Takata provided NHTSA with selective, incomplete or inaccurate data dating back to at least 2009, and continuing through the agency’s current investigation, and that Takata also provided its customers with selective, incomplete or inaccurate data.

Of that $200 million fine, $70 million is payable in cash. An additional $130 million would become due if Takata fails to meet its commitments or if additional violations of the Safety Act are discovered.

The order also imposes unprecedented oversight on Takata for the next five years, including an independent monitor selected by NHTSA to assess, track and report the company’s compliance with the phase-out schedule and other requirements of the Consent Order, and to oversee the Coordinated Remedy Program.

"Today, we are holding Takata responsible for its failures, and we are taking strong action to protect the traveling public," states NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind. "We are accelerating Takata recalls to get safe air bags into American vehicles more quickly, ensuring that consumers at the greatest risk are protected, and addressing the long-term risk of Takata’s use of a suspect propellant."

Separately, the Coordinated Remedy Order issued to Takata and the 12 vehicle manufacturers involved in the existing Takata recalls directs them to prioritize their remedy programs based on risk, and establishes a schedule by which they must have sufficient parts on hand to remedy the defect for all affected vehicles. The order also establishes a Coordinated Remedy Program under which the agency will oversee the supply of remedy parts and manage future recalls with the assistance of an independent third-party monitor.

In the Coordinated Remedy Order NHTSA is using for the first time legal authority which was established in the 2000 TREAD Act to allow the agency to accelerate safety defect repairs if manufacturers’ remedy plans are likely to put Americans at risk. NHTSA announced in June that it was considering use of that authority, and has since gathered information and comment from vehicle manufacturers, parts suppliers and the public as part of a proceeding to determine whether and how to best address recalls involving more than 23 million inflators, 19 million vehicles and 12 automakers.

Under the Coordinated Remedy Order, vehicle manufacturers must ensure they have sufficient replacements on hand to meet consumer demand for the highest-risk inflators by March 2016, and to provide final remedies for all vehicles – including those that will receive interim remedies because of supply and design issues – by the end of 2019.

Cadle Won't Talk Court Reform

Won't Comment, Tells Interviewer To Get Lost
By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

Arrogance and ignoranceRobin Jean Davis with a touch of Hollywood came together in a recent interview of a politician who is supposed to represent Putnam County.

West Virginia Delegate Scott Cadle (R-13) apparently doesn't know who Robin Jean Davis is, despite her repeatedly serving as the Chief Justice of the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, and isn't willing to impeach her over the Lear Jet Justice scandal, or do anything about court reform in The Mountain State.

PutnamLIVE.com tried to interview Cadle, on camera, only to have him duck our questions, or say "no comment," or ask "Who's that?" when we asked him about Davis, who is accused of selling out the West Virginia Supreme Court.

Cadle's strongest statement was to tell PutnamLIVE.com to "Get lost" at the conclusion of the interview.

Sorry, Scotty, PutnamLIVE.com isn't going anywhere. We will continue to ask tough questions and continue to hold government officials accountable.

Pretending he is a Hollywood star, Cadle his behind sunglasses, twisted and turned, and made it clear that he didn't like some tough questions... Especially when he told us to get lost.

Perhaps Cadle wants a place on the Hollywood Walk of Fame... While the West Virginia Supreme Court is accused of being "A circus masquerading as a court," Cadle can be accused of being "A clown masquerading as a politician.

Meanwhile, the West Virginia court system continues to be an international embarassment and the politicians that can do something about it, including Delegates Cadle, Michel G. Moffatt, (R-22) and Carol Miller, (R-16) show little interest or knowledge about the important issue.
