Food Safety Awards Presented to 21 Food Establishments
Port Townsend - The 2015 Outstanding Achievement Awards were presented at the April 21, 2016 Jefferson County Board of Health meeting to recognize 21 restaurants, full-service food establishments, and their proprietors for demonstrating the highest standards of safe food handling during the past year.
The 21 restaurants and proprietors listed below worked hard in 2015 to maintain excellent food safety standards. Most of the recognized establishments work with complex menus, which adds to food safety challenges. Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) and the Board of Health recognized them for their dedication to preventing illness, and encouraged the entire food industry to strive for the same honor.
Criteria for the award were developed by the JCPH Food Safety Round Table and Jefferson County Food Safety Staff and are based on food safety inspections conducted in the areas of personal hygiene, food temperature safety, and prevention from contamination. All food workers must hold a current Washington State Food Worker Card.
