Food Service

Food Service/Retail Food Establishments

Our office licenses and inspects all businesses involved in retail food sales in Shelby County. These businesses include restaurants, groceries, schools, carry-outs, food booths at festivals, vending machines, food trailers, and retail stores. We investigate complaints and possible foodborne disease outbreaks. The Uniform Retail Ohio Food Safety Code is based on the FDA Model Food Code. This is continually updated to reflect changes in the Model Food Code.
