In Sutter County, our Environmental Health Department conducts regular inspections of all commercial food establishments, whether they are in the city of Live Oak, Yuba City, or the unincorporated area.
Facilities that have a permit to operate anywhere in Sutter County–whether they are in the City of Live Oak, Yuba City, or the unincorporated area–are routinely inspected for criteria that meets health and safety codes by our Environmental health Department. These inspection reports are published online at https://www.suttercounty.org/facilityinspection
The goal of providing inspection reports online is to allow potential patrons to review conditions that may exist at a food facility prior to visiting the establishment.
Currently food facilities are required to keep a copy of their last inspection report at the facility and make it available to customers upon request. As the community continues to grow we are seeing more health conscious individuals who are interested in knowing a little more about where they eat.
