The Environmental Health Division is part of the City of Allen Community Development Department. Specialists in this division conduct twice yearly inspections at food facilities in Allen and provide the resulting scores online at CityOfAllen.org/HealthScores.
While each score is compiled from an extensive checklist covering items ranging from the building structure to the preparation areas to the food itself, the final tally is a reflection of what inspectors observed that particular day. Each facility is given the opportunity to correct items flagged which should produce an elevated score at the next regular inspection.
In addition to the twice yearly visit, inspections are also done if a complaint is received. You can submit a form through the MyAllen app to report a food facility or contact 214.409.4160.
