The Division of Environmental Health is responsible for assuring the regular inspection of food service establishments in Platte County. Currently, the Division regularly inspects all such establishments except those within the corporate limits of Kansas City, Missouri.

To Search for an establishment: 

  • Click on the search identifier link located to the left.  When the search screen appears, enter the establishment you are searching for, by name, address, or city. 
  • If you do not know the entire name of the Facility or Street you want to search for, you may use wildcard characters such as %.

Several important notes:

  • A single inspection should not be used to evaluate a food establishment. A series of inspections over time gives a more accurate representation of the food establishment Operator's committment to food safety and sanitation.

 

  • Food establishments with a "high public health priority" are inspected at least three times per year. Those with a "medium public health priority" are inspected at least twice and those with a "low public health priority" are inspected at least once per year. Those with "increased public health priority" are inspected four times per year.  "Public health priority" is determined by the amount of food preparation required, the number of meals served, the population served, and other factors.

 

  • Any time a food establishment is found to pose an imminent threat to public health, it is closed. This is a rare occurrence. Nonetheless, no establishment that does pose such a threat would be allowed to continue operating until all critical violations that were identified had been corrected.  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 insanitary occurrence or condition, or other circumstance that may endanger public health.

 

  • Owners and managers of food establishments are in the business of serving the public and are as concerned with food safety and sanitation as we are. We work together to assure a safe and healthy dining experience.

 

  • Inspections are a public record, and the detailed inspection records are available for examination at the Health Department offices at 212 Marshall Road, Platte City, MO  64079, during our regular hours, Monday-Friday 8am - 4:30pm. Phone:  816.858.2412
