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.

Digital Thermometers Recalled

Wrong Temperatures: Stop Using Immediately
By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

As we head into the winter season, Putnam County families depend on digital thermometers.

We have important news for you, courtesy of a Food and Drug Administration press release:

Bestmed, LLC, a medical device distributor, initiated a nationwide recall of the Digital Temple Thermometer Model No. KD-2201 manufactured by K-Jump Health Co., Ltd, featuring lot numbers S/N: 3612 through S/N: 3715, which were sold between October 2012 until the start of the recall in November 2015.

Some Digital Temple Thermometers contain a manufacturing problem causing the affected thermometers to display temperatures that are inaccurate and lower than actual body temperatures, which potentially may cause the user or caregiver of the user to delay or forego seeking appropriate care (generally an over-the-counter fever reduction medication) or receive more care than appropriate, when relying solely on the temperature display on the thermometer.

Consumers who have a Digital Temple Thermometer should immediately stop using the device. Consumers may return the thermometer to Bestmed for a replacement thermometer.

The following model number(s) have been recalled:

  • KD-2201

(Note: Model KD-2201L is not subject to this recall action)

  • The Digital Temple Thermometer is a hand-held thermometer and can be identified by the DTT™ logo on the face, as shown in the photo
     
  • The back of the thermometer has a label with the KD-2201 designation as shown below. The slash-mark (/) is not part of the model number. The lot number may be found on the bottom of the back label, immediately after the designation “S/N:”

Bestmed voluntarily initiated the recall after becoming aware of the inaccurate temperature readings by the Digital Temple Thermometer, and confirming the source of the performance problem with the manufacturer, K-Jump Health Co., Ltd.

The Digital Temple Thermometer was distributed throughout the United States for direct sale and resale through consumer retail stores, and through consumer retail stores in Canada under the following packaging labels:

  1. Bestmed
  2. Good Neighbor
  3. Kroger
  4. Medline
  5. Meijer
  6. Premier Value
  7. Safeway
  8. Life Brand
  9. Target
  10. Top Care
  11. Best Choice (Value Merchandise)
  12. Western Family

To arrange for the return and replacement of the thermometer or to ask questions, consumers should contact the Bestmed via telephone at 877-299-6700, facsimile at 303-271-0163, or email at DTTRecall@bestmedusa.com, at any time. The office is available Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 7:30 PM, Eastern Time to speak with a consumer support specialist, and all messages and email will be responded to promptly.

Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail or by fax:

Cyber Monday Scam Warning

Morrisey Says Credit Card Data Can Be Abused
By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

Cyber Monday comes Patrick J. Morriseywith the promises of great online deals for the holidays.

It also comes with potential perils: Cyber scams.

West Virginia's Attorney General, Patrick J. Morrisey, is urging Mountain State shoppers to be wary of scammers when searching for deals this Cyber Monday, Nov. 30.

“Online sites will be very busy Cyber Monday, as will scammers and hackers trying to steal your personal information,” says Morrisey. “It is critical for consumers to know how to protect themselves from online scams.”
 
Cyber Monday, developed to encourage online spending through exclusive product offers and discounts, now rivals Black Friday for most retail revenue generated in a single day. It occurs the Monday immediately following Thanksgiving each year.
 
Last year’s numbers showed a continued trend of digital retail growth with more than $2 billion in sales for the first time ever. According to the National Retail Federation, Cyber Monday 2015 is expected to contribute significantly to a projected $105 billion in online holiday sales.
 
Analysts believe that increase comes with the ease of push-button purchases as more and more consumers rely upon computers, smartphones and tablets to help fill Santa’s sleigh.
 
“As purchasing options become more abundant, so do the potential threats to consumers’ personal identifiable information,” explains Morrisey. “Following simple precautions like avoiding unsecure wireless internet connections and suspicious e-mail links can save consumers a lot of time and money.”
 
Morrisey's office suggests the following tips to safeguard personal information:
 
 • Consider using one-time or multi-use credit cards rather than debit cards
 
 • Watch for spelling mistakes or low-quality images, which may indicate a hastily created website
 
 • Ensure URL addresses legitimately match the known retailer’s website
 
 • Avoid money transfers to unknown people, instead rely upon secure payment systems such as PayPal
 
 • Make sure the payment page starts with https:// as the “s” indicates a secure page
 
The Attorney General’s Office also reminds consumers of Federal Trade Commission shipping requirements, which mandate companies deliver merchandise within the time frame promised. It further requires companies to notify consumers when a shipment cannot be delivered on time.
 
If no time frame is promised, the FTC requires companies to ship products within 30 days of when the order is received. Notifications of a late delivery should be accompanied with the choice of a refund or new deliver date. Any refund request must be processed within seven days.
 
If you feel as though you have been scammed while shopping online on Cyber Monday or anytime, please telephone the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division toll free at 800-368-8808.
