The Cowlitz County Health Department is hosting a special workshop today, introducing the state’s Revised Food Code to the local retail food industry. A number of changes are being made to the food code, to go into effect on Wednesday, May 1st. Two workshop sessions are planned today, providing information on these code revisions to local retail food industry owners and managers. The morning session will run from 9 am until noon, and the second session will go from 1:30 to 4:30 pm at the Cowlitz Regional Conference Center. The last hour of each session will be set aside for questions. If you’d like to attend one of these sessions, call the Cowlitz County Health Department at 414-5599, extension 6441 to get signed up. If there’s high demand, additional workshops may be arranged. Additional information on these code revisions is available on a link posted on the Cowlitz County Health Department website.
