Hamilton County Public Health Announces First Quarter 2018 Clean Kitchen Award Winning Facilities

April 17, 2018

Hamilton County, OH……  When heading out to eat, we often look up menus, reviews and recommendations before choosing a place.  For diners at schools, healthcare facilities or other foodservice providers, there is a level of trust that food is being prepared and handled properly.

“We should also be looking up food safety practices, in addition to menus and reviews,” says Greg Kesterman, Assistant Commissioner at Hamilton County Public Health.  Visit to help take the guess-work out of dining decisions by reviewing online inspection reports and Clean Kitchen Award program.

“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in six Americans – or 48 million people – become sick with foodborne disease every year,” Kesterman says. “Foodborne illness hospitalizes 128,000 and kills 3,000 each year.  Most of what we see in terms of foodborne illness is preventable, which is why we put emphasis on our education and inspection program with the food service facilities we serve,” he adds.

“The Hamilton County Public Health Clean Kitchen Award represents the gold standard in maintaining safe food service operations,” Kesterman adds.  “The award is not easy to receive. When you see one on display, it points to an operator that takes the responsibility very seriously.  If you don’t see an award, ask the operator why.”

The requirements for receiving a Clean Kitchen Award are stringent.  To be considered, facilities must:

  • Have three or fewer violations in the previous two years prior to applying;
  • Have no “critical” or repeat violations in the previous two years;
  • Maintain at least two staff members with Level I Food Handler certification or at least one staff member with a current ServSafe certificate;
  • Submit applications along with corresponding documentation;
  • Have a minimum of two years of inspection data on file with Hamilton County Public Health.
