Food Safety & Inspection

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year roughly 1 out of 6 Americans (or 48 million people) get sick; 128,000 are hospitalized; and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. These illnesses and deaths cost Americans billions of dollars each year due to medical expenses and loss of productivity.

The Environmental Health Division licenses and inspects over 1,200 food service establishments within Washtenaw County. The purpose of conducting these inspections is to ensure that safe food is being served to the public.
