Oregon Statutes - Chapter 616 - General and Miscellaneous Provisions - Section 616.740 - Condemnation where insanitary conditions exist.

(1) Whenever the State Department of Agriculture determines that any floor, sidewall, ceiling, locker, closet, furniture, receptacle, implements or machinery of any food establishment is kept in an unclean, unhealthful or insanitary condition, the department shall:

(a) Notify the owner or person in charge of such food establishment that such food establishment shall not be used for such purposes until it is put in a sanitary condition by making the changes ordered by the department in the notice; and

(b) Post a notice upon the food establishment found in an unclean, unhealthful or insanitary condition, to the effect that it is condemned for further use on account of the unclean, unhealthful or insanitary condition.

(2) The notice shall not be removed from any such food establishment until the same has been put in a sanitary condition. A continued use of such food establishment without making the changes ordered, or unauthorized removal of the notice is a violation of this section. [Amended by 1975 c.389 §10]
