To be eligible for 24 Carrot Gold award consideration, a facility must possess a valid St. Charles County Food Establishment permit and be in good standing with the Department of Public Health. Winners cannot have critical inspection violations within the previous year and have more than six non-critical violations over the same period. In addition, a food safety certification class must be completed by at least 90 percent of the facility’s food managers.
Staff from the Division of Environmental Health and Protection regularly inspects permanent, mobile and temporary food service establishments within St. Charles County, except those operating within the city limits of St. Peters (the city health department permits and inspects its own establishments). Inspections are based upon a starting score of 100, with points deducted for various items reported to be in need of correction. To help customers know the food service rating of an establishment, the department requires posting of the most recent inspection in a prominent location as a part of the County’s Food Code.
Throughout the year, the Division of Environmental Health and Protection works with area businesses and organizations to promote healthy conditions in our community. To learn how the division helps to ensure public safety, please call (636) 949-1800 or visit http://www.sccmo.org/environmental.
