While the food supply in the United States is one of
the safest in the world, CDC estimates that 76 million people get
sick, more than 300,000 are hospitalized, and 5,000 Americans die
each year from food-borne illness. Preventing food-borne illness and
death remains a major public health challenge.
The Logan County Health Department hopes that
food inspection results will provide consumers with
important information when making dining decisions and provide added
incentive for food establishments to demonstrate an increased
commitment to food safety.

Health, at 217-735-2317.
