Ask Mandy: What are some changes in the newly released 2017 Food Code?


ANSWER:
 A summary of the 2017 Food Code changes will be available from EcoSure soon. Until then, here are a couple that are important to know:

- Written procedures for vomit and diarrheal events shall be accompanied by the incorporation of an EPA registered disinfectant. (2-501)

- New exception criteria was added, in which the regulatory authority may approve operations to continue during an extended water or electrical outage based on written operational plans. (8-404)

For a more comprehensive overview of these changes, please visit the FDA website and watch for more information from EcoSure.
