The Food Safety and Lodging Program promotes consumer health by ensuring that food manufactured or sold in Kansas is safe. The department licenses food establishments, while food safety staff inspect grocery stores, convenience stores, restaurants, schools, senior meal sites, mobile food units, lodging facilities, food wholesalers and warehouses, food processors and food manufacturers to verify compliance with food safety laws and regulations.
Food safety staff respond to disasters involving food such as fires, floods, and power outages in licensed facilities, as well as responding to truck wrecks that involve food.
Our food safety staff also investigate consumer complaints and educate industry about food safety requirements.
In some cities, county health department staff, with whom we contract for that service, carry out these inspections.
