Safe Seafood

To guarantee the wholesomeness of the products they sell, seafood processors, retailers and restaurants follow rigorous sanitation and safety rules.

To guarantee the wholesomeness of the products they sell, seafood processors, retailers and restaurants follow rigorous sanitation and safety rules, which are administered by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture, and the county health department.

Federal and state health inspectors require seafood processors and packers to routinely monitor eight key sanitation conditions, from the cleanliness of equipment to employee health.

The seafood industry must also comply with a federally-mandated seafood safety program that requires processors to employ specific control strategies that lessen, prevent or eliminate hazards that could injure consumers or make them ill.  The National Restaurant Association and the Carteret County Health Department provide training to food service personnel so they can become certified in managing food safety programs for their businesses.
