Food Safety in the Community

Whether you are the person preparing the food or the one eating the items prepared at a food establishment, safe food handling practices are essential to ensure people do not become ill from improperly stored or prepared foods.

If you have questions about safe food handling practices, contact the HKPR District Health Unit toll-free at 1-866-888-4577 and speak to a Public Health Inspector.
