Public health officials found an average of 3.5 code violations during inspections of 60 Coulee Region restaurants in May.

There were a total of 154 violations reported at 40 establishments in La Crosse, Monroe, Trempealeau and Vernon counties, according to records provided by state and county health departments. There were no inspections conducted in Jackson County during December.

All restaurants inspected during regular annual visits were found to have one or more code violations, and no restaurants were cleared in complaint-driven visits. Three were violation-free in follow ups to inspections done earlier this year.

The most commonly reported violation involved washing of utensils and equipment, chemicals, temperature, Ph. concentration and hardness of food contact surfaces.

The records, obtained through open records requests, were added to the La Crosse Tribune’s online restaurant inspection database, which includes all inspection reports since 2013 at restaurants in Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Trempealeau and Vernon counties.

The interactive database can be searched by establishment, location or the nature of violation.

Restaurants are typically inspected once per year, though some with serious violations receive follow-up visits.

An inspection represents a snapshot in time, and violations are often corrected on the spot. Performance is best measured over multiple inspections.
