This subchapter shall be enforced by the Health Officer.
(A) Inspection records and notices. Whenever the Health Officer or his or her authorized representative makes an inspection of a food-service establishment, he or she shall record his or her findings on an inspection report form provided for this purpose, and shall furnish the original of such inspection report form to the license holder or operator. Such inspection report shall indicate specific violations found and shall establish a specific and reasonable period of time for the correction of them. Failure to comply with any notice issued in accordance with the provisions of this subchapter may result in suspension of the license. An opportunity for appeal from any notice or inspection findings will be provided if a written request for a hearing is filed with the Health Officer within the period of time established in the notice of correction.
(B) Service of notices. Notices provided for under this section shall be deemed to have been properly served when the original of the inspection report form or other notice has been delivered personally to the license holder or person in charge, or the inspection report or notice has been posted by the Health Officer upon an inside wall of the establishment, or such inspection report or notice has been sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested to the last known address of the license holder. A copy of such inspection reports or notices shall be filed with the records of the Health Officer.
(C) Examination and condemnation of food. Samples of food and other substances may be examined or sampled by the Health Officer as often as may be necessary to determine freedom from adulteration. The Health Officer may condemn and forbid the sale of, or cause to be removed, destroyed or denatured, any food which is unwholesome or adulterated.
