Is your favorite grocery or convenience store handling food safely? As an agent of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, it is the responsibility of the Greenfield Health Department to enforce local and state codes regarding the inspection and licensure of retail food establishments which includes grocery stores, butcher shops, delis and convenience stores/gas stations.
The Environmental Health Specialist inspects and licenses all retail food establishments within the City of Greenfield. The Environmental Health Specialist also educates food service personnel about regulations and methods of correction. Each licensed establishment receives an annual routine inspection and additional inspections based on findings or complaints.
If violations are observed during a routine or investigative inspection, they are described in the inspection report with reference to the Wisconsin Food Code. Violations that are immediate health hazards to the general public are corrected immediately; other violation orders are given an appropriate amount of time to be corrected. Additional inspections are conducted until all violations are corrected. Enforcement actions may be pursued for excessive risk factor violations and or repeated violations from past inspections. These actions could include, but are not limited to, citations, re-inspection fees, or suspension of license.
Please note that these reports provide information on the conditions observed by the Environmental Health Specialist at the time of inspection, and may not reflect corrective actions or current conditions. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long term operation of the facility. Therefore, visitors to this site are cautioned against making interpretations regarding a particular facility based on only one report. While every effort is made to keep the information accurate, the City of Greenfield is not responsible for discrepancies between posted information and the actual inspection reports provided to the licensed establishment.
The Greenfield Environmental Health Specialist also performs other essential services such as restaurant inspections, swimming pool, lodging and tattoo facility inspections. This staff member is also involved with investigations of other environmental health problems and human health hazards throughout the City.
Please contact the Environmental Health Specialist at 414-329-5275 if you have questions regarding an inspection report or to notify the health department of concerns you may have.
