In this program, routine, unannounced inspections and complaint investigations are conducted at over 10,000 retail food facilities by Registered Environmental Health Specialists, to verify compliance with the California Health and Safety Code and Riverside County Ordinances. Retail food facilities include restaurants, markets, schools, food trucks and carts, food booths at special events, vending machines, catering operations, and more.
Complaint investigation responses include reports of foodborne illness, food contamination, or other violations of the California Health and Safety Code. You can submit a complaint by either calling one of our area offices or submitting the information online.
This program also administers the Food Handler Certification Program to ensure food handlers have adequate knowledge when working with food.
