The state Department of Health regularly inspects restaurants and food facilities.
The facilities are graded from A to C. “A” is the best. “C” is the equivalent of failing, but the inspection isn’t bad enough to merit the closure of the restaurant.
The following Northeast Mississippi faciliaties were inspected between Feb. 21-28.
The facilities are listed as they are in the MSDH system, even if there are typos.
