As the Governor’s signing message indicates, the California Retail Food Safety Act  (CalCode) represents the culmination of an extraordinary collaborative effort of the California Retail Food Safety Coalition (CRFSC) – a broad-based coalition of federal, state and local regulators and the retail food industry.

This comprehensive law is modeled on the federal Food Code and will accomplish a number of important public health objectives, including:

  • Promotion of uniformity and consistency in retail food safety enforcement;
  • Affording greater protection of highly susceptible populations, including children at school and community and elderly care facility clients;
  • Ensuring that food safety regulation is based on best available science; and
  • Facilitating understanding and compliance of laws through consolidation of statutory provisions.
