COLUMBIA, Mo. - More Boone County eateries finished the last week with clean inspections than with health code violations.
The Columbia/Boone County Public Health Department has inspected 23 eateries since April 24. Twelve of those did not receive any violations, but 11 did.
Of the eateries inspected, Hy-Vee's bakery and deli on Conley Road had the most critical violations.
The grocery store was cited for storing raw chicken above foods that don't need to be cooked, among others. This can cause raw chicken to drip onto ready-to-eat foods.
Health Department assistant director Scott Clardy said all eateries' critical violations are corrected before the health inspector leaves, but if they are not able to be corrected, the inspector sets up a follow-up inspection.
All eateries inspected since April 24.
