How Rodeo Bar and Grill Rates - 11 Critical Health Safety Violations, 5 Non-critical
LABELLE, FL. -- The state of Florida's Division of Hotels and Restaurants is required to do periodic inspections of restaurants, hotels and motels each year, and publishes the results of each inspection online. The Sunday Morning News looked at the most recent health inspection of the LaBelle Rodeo Bar and Grill.
A state health inspector observed the following at a June 8, 2009 inspection of the LaBelle Rodeo Bar and Grill in LaBelle on West Hickpoochee Street (State Road 80). The owners are Robert S. Popoli, president and Mathew Germain, vice president, according to Florida Department of State records.

More information about inspections.
A summary of the violations found during the inspection are listed below. The department cites violations of Florida's sanitation and safety laws, which are based on the standards of U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Food Code. In general, critical violations are those that, if not corrected, are more likely to contribute directly to food contamination, illness or environmental damage.
Although we use the industry-standard term "critical", varying degrees of severity and potential risk to the public require inspectors to assess each situation in determining the appropriate action. In addition, while an establishment may have multiple violations, the inspectors' training and judgment formulate the overall result of the inspection to ensure the public health and safety.
While most establishments correct all violations in a timely manner (often during the inspection), the division's procedures are designed to compel compliance with all violations through follow-up visits, administration action or closure when necessary.
