Food Program

Food Safety Program Information:

Foodborne Illness Investigations:
The Greene County Combined Health District takes all citizen complaints regarding foodborne illnesses and food safety seriously. Hospitals, Doctor’s offices, Laboratories and residents report food related diseases and Health Department staff monitor situations in order to determine if a foodborne outbreak has occurred. Investigations are conducted in order to determine the cause of illness in order to prevent future incidences.

Education and Enforcement:
Food handlers are educated on proper temperatures, storage and cleanliness. However, if needed, enforcement measures are taken to ensure the safety of the food being served or sold. When critical violations are found during regular inspections or complaint investigations, enforcement actions are often necessary.
