Chicago Restaurants: New IL Food Safety Law July 1
Two big changes go into effect for restaurants in Illinois on July 1, 2014:
1) Food Safety Managers’ certification goes from a 2-day class to one; renewing students must take one day class and test every five years.
2) ALL Restaurant Food Handlers in a restaurant MUST complete Safe Food Handler training. This means anyone that handles food or food contact surfaces: dishwashers, waitresses, busboys, line cooks, prep cooks– anyone that is not a manager that handles food or food contact surfaces.
