Welcome to the Food Protection page of the MHOA website. Effective October 5, 2018, the federal 2013 Food Code, and the 2015 Supplement, was adopted by the Public Health Council. MHOA is intent on creating a food protection site that will be a constant source of assistance in your retail food inspectional duties. As documents are updated with the new Code information and other helpful documents are produced, such as translations, we will be posting them here. Funding for this work has primarily been provided by FDA grants.
