Meet Our Newest Pueblo Partner In Food Safety

The Food Safety Program at the Pueblo City-County Health Department is proud to announce the continued growth of its Pueblo Partners in Food Safety program. The Pueblo Partners in Food Safety recognizes local restaurants with exceptional food safety practices, protocols and health reports. The program launched in April 2015 with six facilities and has since grown to a total of eighty-one. The newest Partner is Red Lobster.
“We are happy to see Pueblo Partners in Food Safety’s growth and acceptance in the community, especially with local restaurant owners,” said Vicki Carlton, food safety program manager at the Pueblo City-County Health Department. Carlton added, “The Health Department congratulates all restaurants that are Partners due to their hard work and dedication to health standards.  All restaurants are encouraged to apply; assistance is available with resources for program enrollment, self-assessments and safe food handler training.” 
The Pueblo Partners in Food Safety not only recognizes and promotes restaurants and food facilities but is also a tool to develop Active Managerial Control, a system to ensure steps for safe food handling are being followed. Active Managerial Control empowers food handlers to take control of risks and ensure operations remain safe. Participating facilities conduct a self-assessment of practices and apply to join the program. The Pueblo City-County Health Department reviews and approves applications, allowing partners to receive an official decal for their place of business, a certificate of approval and public recognition on The Dish of Pueblo website.

Look for the Partners window decal at your favorite restaurant in Pueblo and a full list is available online. For more information about the program, food safety news and to view health inspections in Pueblo, click on a tab above and like The Dish of Pueblo on Facebook.
