Food Safety

Retail Food 

An estimated 48 million illnesses, 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths per year in the U.S. are caused by food borne illnesses. 

Food safety is the top priority for the Environmental Health Department as we work with more than 450 local food establishments.

As part of National Food Safety Month, each year the Environmental Health Department recognizes Retail Food Establishments who demonstrate Exceptional Commitment to Food Safety (2017 Awards - 2018 Awards).

Home Food Safety

Restaurants are not the only source of foodborne illness. Many originate at home so the department reaches out to the citizens and visitors of the county to help prevent these illnesses as well.

Food Safety Info

Retail Food Safety Flyers and Guidance is available to restaurants and those preparing food at home.

Food Safety Recalls
Food safety recalls are available on the U.S, Food & Drug Administration (FDA) website.
