Hi, what are you looking for?

Smith State Prison in Glennville recently failed a Food Establishment Inspection by the Georgia Department of Public Health.


Public records show that health inspectors visited the facility on May 24 for an inspection of the food services area of the prison. DPH awarded SSP with a score of ’68-U,’ meaning ‘unsatisfactory.’


The grade is the lowest score the facility has received in the last eighteen months.


Most notably, the report listed “Observed heavy rodent activity in side storage room, discard soiled food products. Observed flies and roaches in kitchen (at storage areas).” The report noted that the violation was a ‘Repeat Violation’ as well.

Smith State Prison’s previous scores include a 78 in November 2021 and a 72 in December 2020.

The report indicated a repeat inspection would be conducted on May 27, however, as of 10:30 a.m. on May 31, the DPH website did not reflect an updated inspection.
