Restaurant Inspections

Editor's Note: A new inspection-scoring system for food facilities went into effect in September after the state of Oregon adopted the 2009 Food and Drug Administration Food Code. Jackson County health inspectors still use the same criteria for evaluating restaurants, focusing on measures that prevent foodborne illness and subtracting points for violations. However, low-priority items — while noted — no longer count against a restaurant's overall score, effectively increasing the likelihood that an establishment can log a perfect score.

Jackson County health inspectors evaluated 131 restaurants in March. All passed their semiannual inspections, and 80 received perfect scores of 100. All scores are published in weekly portions in the Mail Tribune.

The following restaurants received perfect scores of 100:

  • Abby's Legendary Pizza, South Riverside Avenue, Medford; and White City;
