Adoption of FDA Model Food Code
Connecticut has adopted the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Model Food Code and big changes are coming to Connecticut and LLHD! LLHD conducted an informational session to discuss what changes are being implemented and how these changes will affect the procedures of both LLHD and our regulated establishments.
In addition, please see the CT Department of Public Health Food Protection Program Circular letter explaining the implementation deadlines and a CT DPH “draft” side by side comparison of how restaurant classifications will change (October 1, 2017). For general questions about the FDA changes, please contact Ryan McCammon at 860-448-4882 extension 1301 or email@example.com.
