  Food Safety

Foodborne diseases are a major cause of illnesses throughout the world. There are approximately 76 million foodborne illnesses each year in the United States. In California, food safety is regulated by the local (county) environmental health departments.

Food safety regulations are promulgated in Division 104, Part 7 of the California Health & Safety Code, also known as the California Retail Food Code (CalCode).

In Inyo County, all food facilities are inspected regularly. In addition to routine, scheduled inspections, investigative inspections are conducted in response to complaints or suspected foodborne illnesses. Followup inspections are conducted when corrective actions were deemed necessary during a routine or investigative inspection. Routine food inspections include restaurants, markets, bakeries, bars, bed & breakfasts, food service vehicles and carts, and food service operations at fairs, festivals and other special events.
