Health Department

The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.

This section lists the ratings for sanitary inspections performed by Registered Environmental Health Specialists.


  • Satisfactory - the establishment is operating in substantial compliance with this chapter. Foodservice personnel demonstrate that they are aware of and are practicing the required sanitation and food safety principles.
  • Conditionally Satisfactory - at time of inspection, the establishment was found not to be operating in substantial compliance with this chapter and in violation of one or more required provisions. Due to the nature of these violations, an unannounced full reinspection will be scheduled. Opportunity for reinspection is offered within a reasonable time determined by the severity of the violation.
  • Unsatisfactory - whenever a retail food establishment is operating in violation of this chapter, with one or more violations constituting gross unsanitary or unsafe conditions posing imminent health hazards, the Health Authority immediately requests the establishment's manager to voluntarily cease operation until reinspection verifies that conditions warranting unsatisfactory evaluation no longer exist. Meanwhile, the health authority institutes necessary measures provided by law to assure that the establishment does not prepare or serve food until reinspection validates that conditions now meet health standards.
