Restaurant inspections now online

The Arkansas Department of Health is now posting retail food outlets inspection information on its website, and has posted a video on its Facebook page explaining its food inspection program and how to use the online search form.

The health department inspects all food retail establishments, from restaurants to day cares to convenience stores. You can search for inspection data by business name or by date range. If you search by name, you’ll get an inspection history of that business; by date range, you’ll see all businesses inspected within the range and the observations of violations made, if any, on the inspection date, and past inspections.

For example, we input Little Rock in Pulaski County from Aug. 4-Aug. 11 and discovered records for 28 inspections. Inspectors made observations — meaning they found a violation — at 13 of the 28 businesses. For example, from the site we learn that Above and Beyond Childcare had styrofoam cups on the floor rather than in storage and the Ibuprofen was next to the food (both corrected). Violations were also found at Big Red, Hanaroo Sushi Bar, Kitchen Express, Kool's Barbecue, Kilwins Chocolate, Raceway, 65th St. Valero, Kilwins, Slim Chickens on Shackleford, Subway Sandwiches on South University, Wakefield Elementary, Little Rock Sharks and Senor Tequila.
