The Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO), under contract to the Food and Drug Administration, is gathering data on the progress of FDA Food Code adoptions by States, Territories, and Indian Health Service. Adoption of the Food Code represents a successful federal/state/local partnership in improving food safety. FDA and AFDO's goal is the prevention and reduction of foodborne illness and death from food produced at the retail level. Adoption of the Food Code by all food safety agencies at the federal, state, local and tribal levels establishes a sound regulatory foundation and legal framework for uniformity in achieving such a reduction.
The data contained in this report was collected by the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) through internet research and personal contact with state program personnel. Please contact the AFDO office at 717-757-2888 to verify any information in this summary.
