Natrona County Health and Food Inspection (1/16/23–1/22/23)

Casper, Wyo. – The Casper-Natrona County Health Department inspects restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, mobile food units, commissaries and food vending operations. Each facility has unannounced inspections at least twice a year.

According to the department, “There are three types of violations: priority, priority foundation and core.”

While the health department is looking for deficiencies, the organization’s main goal is to educate businesses, helping them understand unsafe practices and ways to fix them.

According to the program manager for environmental health in Natrona County, “there is no sliding scale or pass or fail of health inspections.” Each violation is fixed either immediately or within 10 days, meaning the violation does not make the business unsafe.

If a re-inspection is needed, the problem may be more serious or the facility may need more time to fix it. They have 10 days to fix the problem, and according to Heald most facilities can easily meet the requirement.

Any serious violations or notable citations will be included in the summary note below, but full reports for each restaurant can be found on the department’s website, where it publishes all of its current information.
