Anyone interested in Minneapolis food inspection reports can now find them online.

The city of Minneapolis issued a release Thursday stating the food inspection lookup tool can sort information by business name or address, location, inspection date and business category (restaurant, grocery or institution).

Those interested can look up reports on individual businesses or collect bulk health inspection data from the past three years. The city is posting this public information online to improve transparency of city data.

Along with restaurants, food trucks, grocery stores, gas stations, coffee shops, gyms and school buildings like fraternity houses are subject to inspection.

A health inspection report begins with a score of 100. Violation points are subtracted from 100 to determine the final score for the inspection. Priority 1 violations are the most serious violations and remove the most points; they can cause food to be unsafe, according to the release. Some examples of those would be not cooking or cooling food to the correct temperature or employees not washing their hands correctly. Priority 2 violations are for conditions that control food safety risks such as a business without a thermometer or a hand sink without soap. Priority 3 violations relate to general cleanliness and maintenance including broken equipment or dirty floors.
