LANSING, Mich. - There's a new tool to help people find out about inspection results from more than 19,000 retail food establishments in Michigan.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development announced Tuesday that an online system will allow people to check for those results.
Michigan has updated food regulations taking effect Oct. 1.
The online system called MiSafe offers access to inspection results, including violations.
Routine inspections typically are conducted at a 6-, 12- or 18-month frequency, depending on the type and complexity of food handling at the establishment.
MiSafe will include inspection reports dating back to September 2011.
