Seven Jefferson City school kitchens inspected in September

The Jefferson City Environmental Health Services Department inspected 36 food establishments in September and identified 16 "priority" violations.

"Priority violations are items that, if in non-compliance, are more likely to contribute to food contamination, illness, or an environmental health hazard," - The City of Jefferson's website.

City inspectors identified 46 "core" violations in September, which are considered less critical than priority ones.

Among the establishments inspected in September were five elementary schools, one middle school and one high school.

Only one priority violation was discovered at Jefferson City School District buildings: Moreau Heights Elementary School was had a commercial dishwasher with an incorrect level of sanitation. Lawson Elementary School and Thomas Jefferson Middle School were not cited with any violations.

Private schools inspected in September include Helias High School, at which three core violations were found; Saint Joseph Elementary, at which two core violations were found; Saint Peters Elementary, at which one core violation was found and Trinity Lutheran Elementary, at which inspectors found three priority violations.
