It’s never too early to learn how to “Make the Smart Choice”. The Department has also developed educational materials aimed at children. We invite all kids to become Jr. Inspectors and help keep food safe!
If you have seen an unpermitted vending operation and would like to assist us by reporting it, please use our online complaint form. You may also file complaints on permitted facilities if you believe they are operating outside of their permit limitations.
The FDA, USDA, and CDC have joined forces to develop a food defense initiative to assist food facility operators in training their employees on what they can do to keep the food supply protected and safe. The name of this campaign is Employees First because employees really are the first line of food defense. Preventing intentional contamination of food is vital in the defense of our country and educating our first line is a critical step. Facilities that have no food defense protocol in place may find themselves vulnerable to attack. For more information visit the FDA’s website where you can print posters to post in your break room or other areas of your facility and watch the 12 minute animated training video available through the Employees First campaign.
