Food Service/Food Establishments
This division licenses and inspects all businesses involved in retail food sales in Sandusky County, with the exception of Bellevue City. These businesses include restaurants, groceries, schools, carry-outs, food booths at festivals, vending machines, food trailers, drug stores and retail stores. Also, we investigate complaints and possible food-borne disease outbreaks. Our inspections are based on the Uniform Retail Ohio Food Safety Code, which was implemented on March 1, 2001.
