Food Service Sanitation

Michigan Food Law authorizes the Genesee County Health Department to license and regulate all food service establishments within Genesee County. These include restaurants, bars, cafeterias, coffee shops, donut shops, concessions, catering kitchens, rental halls, and private organizations serving the public. Genesee County has nearly 1,400 mobile and fixed establishments. The health department licenses an additional 450 temporary food service establishments each year.

Health departments do not regulate grocery and convenience stores, meat markets, bakeries, food warehouses, and food processing plants. The Michigan Food Law authorizes the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) to license and regulate these facilities. For information about these facilities or to make a complaint about one located in Genesee County, contact the MDA at (989) 758-1778 or here.
