The Danbury Health and Human Services Department is hosting an informational session tonight about some rule changes. The new FDA food code means some changes for Danbury restaurants, caterers, school cafeterias, nursing homes and others. Tonight’s food regulation informational session is from 7 to 8pm at City Hall.
One change is that a Qualified Food Operator will now be known as a Certified Food Protection Manager. Hot and cold holding temperatures will be changing. A new inspection form will be used to better align with the FDA Food Code.
Starting next July, restaurants cannot be issued a permit to operate a food establishment unless the applicant has registered with the Connecticut Department of Public Health in addition to the Danbury Department of Health.
Another session will be held on December 6th.
