The Bureau of Food Safety touches every
Pennsylvanian and even those beyond. We work with other regulatory agencies
including federal, county and local, the citizens, farmers and industry to
provide the safest, best quality food products possible. We respond to food
related emergencies throughout the state including fires in food facilities,
food truck wrecks, floods and power loss in food facilities. We are involved in

educate those we come in contact with, by providing the most up-to-date
information on food safety.
