Food Inspections Online

The Sussex County Department of Environmental and Public Health Services conducts unannounced inspections on over 1,000 food facilities at least once a year. Here you can find the results of inspections conducted since January 1, 2011.

Sussex County Registered Environmental Health Specialists (Health Inspectors) check for compliance in food handling, food temperature and personal hygiene using "Chapter 24" of the New Jersey Administrative Code. The Code is quite complex, but we understand it so you don't have to.

Food establishments may be graded as Satisfactory, Conditionally Satisfactory, or Unsatisfactory. If you wish, you can also view the Full Inspection Report.

Retail Food Facility Inspections Disclosure
Please remember that any inspection is a "snapshot" of the day and time of the inspection. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term cleanliness of an establishment. Also, at the time of the inspection, violations are recorded but are often corrected on the spot prior to the inspector leaving the establishment.

What do Evaluations mean?

"Satisfactory": The establishment is found to be operating in substantial compliance with this chapter and food service personnel have demonstrated that they are aware of and are practicing sanitation and food safety principles as outlined in this chapter.
"Conditionally Satisfactory": At the time of the inspection the establishment was found not to be operating in substantial compliance with this chapter and was in violation of one or more provisions of this chapter. Due to the nature of these violations, a reinspection shall be scheduled. The reinspection shall be conducted at an unannounced time. A full inspection shall be conducted. Opportunity for reinspection shall be offered within a reasonable time and shall be determined by the nature of the violation.
"Unsatisfactory": Whenever a retail food establishment is operating in violation of this chapter, with one or more violations that constitute gross insanitary or unsafe conditions, which pose an imminent health hazard, the health authority shall issue an unsatisfactory evaluation. The health authority shall immediately request the person in charge to voluntarily cease operation until it is shown on reinspection that conditions which warrant an unsatisfactory evaluation no longer exists. The health authority shall institute necessary measures provided by law to assure that the establishment does not prepare or serve food until the establishment is reevaluated. These measures may include embargo, condemnation and injunctive relief.
