Are food safety violations becoming the norm for Michigan restaurants?

Brian McVicar from The Muskegon Chronicle investigates the thousands of food code violations that were reported from 2007-2010 in Muskegon County, Michigan (an area with the population size of about 174,000 according to Muskegon County’s website http://www.co.muskegon.mi.us/).

However, restaurants aren’t the only ones skirting the law,  “Schools, hospitals, and food stands found in places such as Michigan’s Adventure Amusement Park were cited for breaking the rules, too. ”

McVicar used Microsoft Access to slice and dice the data numerous ways, including what restaurants accumulated the most violations and how common some of the most serious violations are.
