Food Hygiene

Florida Department of Health in Nassau County Environmental Health

The Department of Health works with food service establishments as defined by s. 381.0072, Florida Statute to help ensure their products are not a source of foodborne illness. Generally this includes food service operations located in institutional settings (such as schools, assisted living facilities, detention facilities, adult day cares, etc.), civic and fraternal organizations, bars and lounges that don't prepare foods and theaters that limit their food service to items customarily served at theaters (such as beverages, pop corn, hot dogs and nachos).

The codes and standards for food service establishments are found in Chapter 64E-11), Florida Administrative Code. Visit the Florida Department of Health website for more information.
