(410 ILCS 625/1)
(from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 331)
Any business establishment dealing in the sale of food items
which does not comply with existing state laws relating to food handling
or does not comply with the health and food handling regulations of any
local governmental unit having jurisdiction of such establishment may be
enjoined from doing business in the following manner: the Department of
Public Health of the State of Illinois or local departments of health
may seek an injunction in the
circuit court for the county in which such establishment is located.
Such injunction, if granted, shall prohibit such business establishment
from selling food items until it complies with any applicable state laws
or regulations of a local governmental agency. However, no injunction
may be sought or granted before July 1, 1980, to enforce any rule or regulation
requiring a food service establishment to have one or more persons who are
certified in food service sanitation.
The local department of health shall file a written report with the Illinois
Department of Public Health within 10 days after seeking an injunction against
a business establishment dealing in the sale of food items.
