Inspector Impersonation Alert!

Occasionally, the health department will receive a report from a food service operator that someone impersonating a health inspector has tried to gain access to his or her facility.   Last week, we received such a report, and fortunately, the reporting operator informed the person that he would be notifying the police and the person quickly left.

As a result, we wanted to share a short clip from our Food Safety Partnership Panel on Food Defense that presents important reminders in this area for food service operators and their staff.  

To help you to better protect your facility, you may also want to review the FDA’s Food Defense module at the following link:
