Food Safety

The Illinois Department of Public Health requires that every food service establishment undergo environmental health inspections. The frequency of required inspections is determined by the Risk Category (I, II or III). In general, retail stores with packaged food require two inspections per year, restaurants require three inspections per year, and nursing homes require four inspections per year.In all cases, food safety inspections must be performed by an Illinois-licensed Environmental Health Practitioner.

ECG can provide food safety inspections at a very competitive price.

Full Inspections

ECG’s environmental health inspection services are focused on food safety issues such as food handling, food storage, indications of pest infestation, and verifying food service sanitation training certification. After each inspection, a written report is issued utilizing a three-part carbonless form. The report will include the results of the inspection and a detailed description of all food service sanitation violations.


Re-inspections are conducted in the event of a critical violation or a repeat violation. The re-inspections focus on any violations, and continue until the critical and/or repeat violations have been corrected.
