The Genesee County Health Department is set to recognize 10 food service establishments for excellent sanitation records.
A reception for award winners and guests will be held on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at the Flint Institute of Arts located at 1120 E. Kearsley, Flint. The reception will begin at 3:30 in the Isabel Room and the award ceremony at 4:00 p.m. in the Theatre.
This year marks the 18th annual presentation of "Excellence in Sanitation" Awards. Each food service establishment in Genesee County has been placed in one of ten categories. The winner in each category was determined by examining the two most recent routine inspection reports and conferring with the inspecting Sanitarian.
Establishments with no priority or priority foundation violations and the fewest core violations were selected for the award. Priority and priority foundation violations are those that can lead directly to foodborne illness; e.g., unsafe food temperature, poor employee hygiene and cross-contamination. Examples of core violations include the cleanliness and condition of walls, floors, ceilings, plumbing repair and dumpster use.

Certified managers are on staff where needed; food safety is the priority with temperature control through preparation, cooling, reheating and service; employees practice proper personal hygiene; and food contamination is virtually eliminated. These award winners will be recognized at Genesee County's Annual Public Health Conference on May 7, 2013 and their annual food license fee will be waived.
