Videos Explaining 2017 FDA Food Code Changes

 In July 2020, the State of Arizona adopted the 2017 FDA Food Code, with an added addendum.  This was the first time that the code has been updated since 2001 when the 1999 Food Code was adopted.  As a result, when the State adopted the updated 2017 FDA Food Code, Coconino County’s Unified Health Code automatically updated as well. 

Below are information videos outlining the major changes from the 1999 FDA Food Code to the 2017 FDA Food Code.
