Under the guidance of the California Food Code, the Environmental Health & Safety Office applies these regulation in order to safeguard public health and provide our campus community members, and its visitors, safe and unadulterated food. The Temporary Food Permit Program is in place to ensure Registered Campus Organizations and other campus partners serving food to the general public are following safe food handling procedures. Private events, such as office events and organizational meetings, do not need to obtain a Temporary Food Permit
Please review the Temporary Food Permit Procedure.
The first step you should take is to contact your medical service provider as soon as possible. The physician’s diagnosis is a key element in assisting our office in determining whether you became ill from eating at the facility or the vending machine on campus.
The next step is: After seeing your physician, contact EHS immediately at 949-824-6200. You can leave a detailed voicemail message at this number after normal business hours. The campus Registered Environmental Health Specialist will contact you the next workday. Please review Foodborne Illness Investigations before placing the call; this information is vital for EHS to properly follow-up on your request.
