Establishment Closings

The inspection and regulation of food establishments and other facilities in Alabama is the responsibility of the Alabama Department of Public Health environmental staff at the county health departments and the Division of Food, Milk and Lodging (FML). The Department issues enforcement actions where immediate hazards exist or where compliance is not obtained voluntarily.

An establishment is required to immediately cease operations in the event of any of the following: extended interruption of electrical or water service, complete lack of refrigeration, complete lack of hot water, sewage backup, misuse of poisonous or toxic materials, onset of an apparent foodborne illness outbreak, or other circumstance that may endanger public health, including an inspection score of less than sixty. Operations are not resumed until an inspection indicates conditions constituting an imminent health risk and a substantial hazard no longer exist.

Below is a list of recent (within the last 90 days) enforcement actions for food service establishments, lodging facilities and body art facilities. In most instances conditions are corrected and the establishment can reopen within a few hours. To verify the current status of a particular establishment, contact the Environmental Office of the local county health department.
