A Food for Thought Update:

Don’t miss your chance to comment on potential changes to statewide rules for retail food services. The comment period is over at the end of July.

Multiple public presentations by the Washington State Department of Health are planned to go over and take comments about the rule changes. The closest to Snohomish County are in Ferndale from 1-3 p.m. July 22, Renton 1-3 p.m. July 23, and Seattle 5:30-7:30 p.m. July 23. You can also register for a webinar (9-11 a.m. July 25) by emailing food.safety@doh.wa.gov. A full list of presentations is available online at www.doh.wa.gov/foodrules under "Food Code Rule Revision."

Want to know more but can’t make it to a presentation? You can read a summary of the potential changes or a draft of the rule language online at the Department of Health website, on the same page as the list of presentations.

Email your comments to food.safety@doh.wa.gov by July 31.
