    When you eat, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting sick. That’s why we work to make sure your food is safe to eat. We work with food handlers, restaurants and businesses to prevent foodborne illness.

    We:

      • Teach and certify people to safely serve food.
      • Inspect and teach to make sure food is safely stored, handled, cooked and served.
      • Investigate foodborne illness outbreaks.
