Treasure Valley public health agencies send inspectors out to restaurants at least once a year. During the inspections, they note health-code violations — including those with the highest risk of causing food poisoning. The Idaho Statesman requested the data from these inspections and compiled the results into a searchable database. The inspections cover restaurants and commercial kitchens in Boise, Nampa, Meridian, Caldwell, Kuna, Eagle and other Treasure Valley cities.
