Food Service Establishments

Food Service Establishments (FSEs)

All Food Service Establishments in Jackson will be inspected periodically to assess compliance with the FOG Control Program. Following an inspection, a copy of the completed inspection form will be provided to the facility manager noting any noncompliant issues observed. The inspection will typically result in one of the following actions:

  • Facilities equipped with appropriate and adequately-sized grease control equipment that are meeting the intent of the FOG Control Program through effective FOG management practices will be commended for their compliance.
  • Noncompliant facilities will be required to correct the deficiencies noted by the inspector. This might include better housekeeping practices, increasing the cleaning frequency of grease control equipment, or other FOG control improvements. A follow up inspection will be scheduled to insure the issues cited have been addressed.
  • After the follow up inspection, if the facility is still found to be noncompliant, a courtesy Notification of Noncompliance letter will be issued, requiring in writing that the noncompliant issue be addressed together with notice of another follow up inspection (usually after 5 days). Failure to comply will result in a Notice of Violation and the facility will be subject to a fine.
  • Existing facilities that are not successful in achieving compliance with the intent of the FOG Control Program through improved housekeeping and increased cleaning of their existing grease control equipment will be required to install the necessary equipment to bring the facility into compliance. The City of Jackson will work with the facility to set a reasonable amount of time to achieve compliance.
