CHS inspects approximately 2700 food establishments licensed in the state of Wyoming. Inspection frequencies are based on risk and type of establishment such as full service restaurants, fast food restaurants, schools, and grocery stores. Risk is also determined by the inspection history of the establishment and whether or not the establishment has been involved in a food borne illness outbreak. All food establishments will be inspected at least one time per year with some establishments inspected four times per year. The food establishment inspections are based on the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system. This system concentrates on those items most likely to cause a food borne illness. The items most likely to cause a food borne illness are: violations in the time/temperature relationship for food; personal hygiene such as poor hand washing practices and sick employees preparing food; cross-contamination of food or utensils from raw to cooked products; improper cleaning and sanitizing of food contact surfaces; and contamination of food and equipment by insects and/or rodents.
