Food Establishment Inspection Reports

Fast Facts about Health Department Food Establishment Inspections

  • Food establishment inspections are conducted by Fairfax County's Health Department, Division of Environmental Health, Consumer Protection Program.
  • The Fairfax County Health Department permits and inspects more than 5,500 food establishments within the localities of Fairfax County, City of Fairfax and City of Falls Church. All three jurisdictions have ordinances governing the operation of food establishments based on the Commonwealth of Virginia Food Regulations and the FDA 2017 Food Code.
  • The inspection report information posted here describes conditions found in food service establishments at the time of the inspection. A single inspection should not be used to evaluate a food service establishment. Looking at the series of inspection results over time gives a more accurate picture of the food service establishment's commitment to food safety.
  • Any time a food service establishment is found to pose an imminent hazard to the public health, the food establishment is required to stop operations and close until such time as the health hazard is removed. An imminent health hazard may exist because of an emergency such as a fire, flood, extended interruption of electrical or water service, sewage backup, misuse of poisonous or toxic materials, the onset of an apparent foodborne illness outbreak, a gross unsanitary occurrence/condition or other circumstances that may endanger public health.

Complaints may be reported to the Health Department through the county's Planning and Land Use System.
