Food Safety & Permits
The goal of the CDHD Food Safety Program is to lower the number of outbreaks of foodborne illness, when people get food poisoning after eating the same unsafe food. We work to ensure that safe food is offered to the public by permitted and inspected establishments.
News & Notes
The final CDC update on a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Agbeni infections has been posted at https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/agbeni-11-18/index.html.
According to new data released by CDC, so far during the 2018-2019 season between about 6 and 7 million people have been sick with flu, up to half of those people have sought medical care for their illness, and between 69,000 and 84,000 people have been hospitalized from flu. This is the first time these estimates— which cover the period from October 1, 2018 through January 5, 2019— are being provided during the flu season. CDC has estimated the burden of flu since 2010.
