NEIGHBORHOODS & HEALTHY COMMUNITIES COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Bert Malone, Health Department, explained that the ordinance before the committee would adopt the 2005 FDA Food Code with modifications. The intent and purpose is to protect the health of the public. In addition, the code changes clarify requirements of various food handlers and the need for certification in order to prevent food borne disease transmission. This changes reduce the number and type of individuals required to be trained and certified. The change requires a certified trained manager to be present at all times that food is being prepared and actively involved in the oversight of the food handling and preparation. Eighty per cent (80%) of required food handler staff shall obtain a (3) three year FOOD HANDLER CARD from the City of Kansas City, Missouri Health Department either upon completion of a FOOD HANDLER’S Course through the Health Department or upon the Health Department’s approval of a comparable FOOD HANDLER PERMIT or card from another provider. Finally, the revision allows the Department to prioritize and conduct more frequent inspections based upon its assessment of a food establishment's history of compliance with the code and the subsequent potential for food borne illness. There were comments from the committee and Mr. Malone was asked if the ordinance needed to be advance he stated that it did not need to be advanced.
