Health Department Issues Guidance for Retail Food Establishments Related to Water Main Break in Peoria
Feb 10, 2014
The Peoria City/County Health Department is providing guidance on food safety for retail food establishments related to the water main break in the City of Peoria.
- Food establishments that do not have water need to close.
- If restaurants/commercial establishments do not have enough water pressure to conduct sanitary functions, they need to close.
- Once water supply is re-established, then boil order procedures will go into effect.
Restaurants should follow the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) bulletin for Food Establishments. This bulletin explains a boil order, potable water and how it should be used, kitchen equipment that should not be used, and what to do after the boil order is lifted.
