Health Inspection of Victoria Area Eateries
The Victoria City-County Health Department Environmental Health Division inspects places where food is served in Victoria, DeWitt, Jackson and Calhoun counties.
In the inspection reports, each violation in the food temperature/time requirements category is 5 demerits; in the personnel/handling/source requirements category, 4 demerits; and in the facility and equipment requirements, 3 demerits. Zero is a perfect score while 100 demerits is the worst possible score.
Each Wednesday, the Advocate publishes inspection results from the previous week. All demerits are reported, but only those in the categories of food temperature/time requirements and personnel/handling/source requirements are detailed.
