UPDATE: A look at food inspections in Pueblo County

I just got done interviewing the Pueblo-City County Health Department about restaurant inspections. Here's what I found out. The health department inspects roughly 900 retail food establishments in Pueblo County every year. Each establishment is inspected once or twice a year, depending on the type of facility and food being served.

Last year, 17 foodborne illness complaints were reported in Pueblo County, and there were 149 total restaurant complaints.

Anyone can view a restaurant's health inspection files, by visiting the Pueblo City-County Health Department at 101 W. 9th St. Also, to file a complaint about a restaurant you can call the health department at 719-583-4323.

I'm still working on this story for tonight. I'm hoping to have numbers from El Paso County as well.
