Food Safety & Inspections PDF Print E-mail

 

The Environmental Health division at Siouxland District Health Department has a contract with the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals to license and inspect retail food establishments in the Iowa counties of Woodbury, Plymouth, Sioux, Lyon, Osceola, O'Brien, Cherokee, Clay, Dickinson, Emmet, and Palo Alto. Retail food establishments may include restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, coffee shops, concession stands, mobile food trucks, catering operations, vending machines, home bakeries, and temporary food stands.  

Selling food in Iowa typically requires a license, with a few exceptions, and the regulations are the same across the state of Iowa. The retail food safety and licensing program is housed within the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals, which adopts the rules and does the licensing and inspections in some counties, and contracts with some local entities to administer and enforce the Iowa Food Code in other counties.  The purpose of the Food Code is to "safeguard the public health and provide to consumers food that is safe, unadulterated, and honestly prepared."  The Food Code is based upon food safety recommendations developed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in consultation with industry and regulators, and focuses on public health and the prevention of foodborne illness.
