Natrona County health and food inspections (12/19/22–12/25/22)

Casper, Wyoming — The Casper Natrona County Health Department inspects restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, mobile food units, concessions, and food vending operations. All facilities are subject to unannounced inspections at least twice a year.

According to the department, “There are three types of violations: priority, priority base, and core.”

The Ministry of Health looks for flaws, but the main goal of the organization is to educate businesses so they understand unsafe practices and how to fix them.

According to the Natrona County environmental health program manager, “There are no sliding scales or passing or failing health checks.” All violations are corrected immediately or within 10 days. This means that breaches do not put your business at risk.

If a retest is required, the problem may have been more serious or the facility may have taken more time to fix it. He has 10 days to fix the problem, and Heald said most facilities can easily meet the requirements.

Serious violations and notable citations are included in summary notes below, while full reports for each restaurant can be found on the department’s website, which publishes all current information.
