State of Michigan's Food Inspection Online Postings
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) licenses and inspects over 19,000 grocery and convenience stores, food processors and food warehouses. Ensuring the safety of food sold and distributed in Michigan is MDARD’s highest priority.
**PLEASE NOTE: MDARD is in the process of switching to a new online licensing and inspection reporting system. During this transition, inspection information will not be available online. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. Inspection information on individual licensed food establishments is still available upon request. Please submit your request in writing to MDA-Info@Michigan.gov.
On this website, you can access historical food inspection reports from September 2011 to 2014 for retail food establishments (primarily grocery and convenience stores) active and inspected by MDARD during this time period.
Routine inspections are typically conducted at 6, 12 or 18-month frequency, depending on the type and complexity of the food handling at the establishment.
Violations are items that, if not addressed, may lead to foodborne illness, food contamination or an environmental health hazard. More severe violations that are not corrected during a routine inspection may require a follow-up inspection within ten days.
Some violations are identified as less severe, but still need to be addressed by the establishment. These types of violations include items such as dirty floors or lack of hair restraints.
Restaurants are inspected by Michigan’s 45 local health agencies, and reports for these are not included on this site. However, some of these agencies make these reports available on their county websites.
