After three North Star food vendor booths were shut down during this week’s Western Montana Fair, health department and fair officials agree that tighter supervision will keep the problem from occurring again. 

News partners NBC Montana reported on Friday, that the vendors who were shut down this week will have to prove that their food is safe for the public before being allowed to serve during next year’s fair.

Western Montana Fair Director Todd Garrett told NBC Montana that he was grateful that health department inspectors discovered the problems, and forced the vendors to close their doors for the remainder of the fair.

The three North Star vendors, the Candy Stand, Route 66 Diner and Delightful Goodies were all closed down after failing health department inspections.

Officials were careful to emphasize that all the foods served by local nonprofit clubs and churches were safe to eat and enjoy at this year’s fair.

The fair ran from Tuesday through Sunday.
