ELYRIA, Ohio – Here are the Lorain County restaurants and retailers cited for the most food inspection violations during the 2021-2022 inspection year ending Feb. 28, according to state records.
A total of 655 of the nearly 865 different restaurants and other food retail businesses in Lorain County cited were found to have five or fewer violations.
A small number had more than a dozen violations. The 22 listed below had at least 16 violations, with the top spot being cited with 43 violations.
This is the third in a 2022 series of stories highlighting food inspection violations on cleveland.com, after pausing the annual reporting during the pandemic, initially because so many restaurants had closed temporarily.
Published earlier, see the 25 Cleveland restaurants and 24 suburban Cuyahoga County restaurants with the most food inspection violations in 2021-2022. And see the previous inspection years at these links, 2017-18, 2016-17, and 2015-16.
Each restaurant in Ohio is inspected twice a year, plus follow-ups as needed to check on identified problems. Other places handling food to a lesser extent may be inspected once a year.
Some violations are minor. Many problems are fixed at the time of the inspection. Violations identified as “critical” are those that “may immediately lead to a foodborne illness,” the Ohio Department of Health says.
Health inspectors cannot impose fines, but health departments can suspend or revoke operating licenses.
