Staff report
The Mississippi Department of Health conducted 23 food service inspections in Panola between
March 1 and March 31 with 51 facilities receiving A grades. There were three B grades and four
C grades assigned.
Restaurants and other food facilities are required to display their inspection results with a letter
grade to clearly communicate the most recent health department inspection.
The A, B or C rating reflects whether critical violations were found and corrected. This grading
system appears in all restaurants, as well as food facilities such as school cafeterias, day care
centers, and cafes and bars where food is sold.
“A” grade means the facility inspection found no critical violations. “B” grade means critical
violations were found but corrected under the supervision of the inspecting environmentalist.
No further corrective actions are required.  “C” grade means critical violations were found, but
some or all were not corrected during the inspection. The facility will be re-inspected, and all
violations must be corrected in a time period not to exceed 10 days.
The Panola County facilities receiving A grades in the latest inspections were as follows:
Como Steakhouse, Mr. Jiffy, Como Primary School, Batesville Intermediate School cafeteria,
