Food Safety Program
The Health Unit’s food safety program seeks to protect residents and visitors to Webster County from foodborne illness by working with local food establishments, food handlers, caterers and temporary event coordinators to ensure compliance with the 2009 Missouri Food Code, effective September 30, 2013. This document provides instruction, guidelines and requirements on how to safely handle, prepare, and store food to minimize the risk of adulteration and foodborne illness.
Online Food Safety Training
Through StateFoodSafety.com, food handlers can complete an interactive food safety course for just $20 and receive a completion certificate.
For more information on the food safety program, contact the Webster County Health Unit at (417) 859-2532.
If you are aware of a Food Code violation, please register a complaint with the Health Unit by mail or by phone call, so staff can follow up with an investigation.
