Iowa food inspection report postings backlogged

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — State officials say there's a backlog of several months in the online posting of Iowa food inspection reports.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (http://bit.ly/XcFejO ) that no reports have been posted for public view since late December.

The Food and Consumer Safety Bureau of the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals has been migrating to a new website and software and is still transferring records. Department spokesman David Werning says officials hope to have the new site up and working within two weeks.

Tim Link is an environmental sanitarian with the city of Dubuque Health Department, and he says inspections are being performed as usual.

All Iowa food establishments must be inspected at least once every six months or according to a risk-based inspection process.
