A Rochester restaurant was closed by the Fulton County Health Department.
Dawn Risten, Food Service Inspector / Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, stated in a prepared statement that the American Grill, 835 N. State Road 25, was closed September 11, due to operating without a Food Service Permit. To open a new restaurant in Fulton County, the Indiana State Department of Health rules and Fulton County Food Ordinance have to be followed. In order for American Grill to open they need to correct all violations from previous inspection, have a pre-operational inspection and obtain an annual Food Service Permit from the Fulton County Health Department.
Risten's release goes on to say that there is no time frame from the Fulton County Health Department to have this done nor have they been given a time frame from the owner of the American Grill that it will be ready for the pre-operational inspection to obtain a Food Service Permit at this time.
