The Bristol-Burlington Health Department monthly inspects businesses serving food to ensure restaurants and other food retail outlets are following safe food handling procedures.
Connecticut regulates how often these inspections take place, and what specific items the inspectors look for, but, in general, health inspectors check that safeguards are in place to protect food from contamination by food handlers, cross-contamination, and contamination from other sources in the restaurant.
Monthly inspection reports are released to the public online at The Bristol-Burlington Health Department website or in person.
