Maine restaurants that failed inspections

Maine state health inspectors failed more than 160 restaurants for sanitary violations in 2013.

Fifteen eating establishments were ordered closed, three of them because they posed an imminent threat to public health.

Four restaurants that were closed but did not fail may have been closed for reasons unrelated to sanitary infractions.

By law, eating establishments must be inspected every two years. Other inspections are prompted by a complaint or are follow-ups to previous inspections.

Restaurants that fail are subject to re-inspection, and the establishments listed here may have passed subsequent inspections.

For more information on this list and restaurant inspection reports, call 207-287-5671.

IHH - Imminent Health Hazard, a designation caused by an emergency such as a fire, flood, extended interruption of electrical or water service, sewage backup, misuse of poisonous or toxic materials, onset of an apparent foodborne illness outbreak, gross unsanitary occurrence or condition, or other circumstance that may endanger public health. [State of Maine 2013 Food Code]

* Denotes a restaurant that was ordered closed but did not fail inspection and was not deemed an IHH.

This database was updated at 9 a.m. on Jan. 29 to remove Joey's 2 in Lewiston. The state erroneously included Joey's 2 in its list of restaurants with failed inspections; it was the restaurant that previously occupied the space at that address that failed.

This database was updated at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 14 to clarify that Mr. Bagel is located at 50 Market St., South Portland.
