Report - Unattended Food Establishment Committee (UFE)

Issue you would like the Conference to consider

The 2014 Conference Issue 2014-I-019 created the Unattended Food Establishment Committee and charged the committee with three goals:

  1. Develop recommendations on whether and how the Food Code should be modified to address unattended food merchandising operations,
  2. Continue to review the "Guidance Document for Unattended Food Establishments" and any existing guidance from FDA and others to update the CFP guidance document that could assist states when addressing the need to have alternative protective provisions in place when approving a waiver or variance for entities that do not meet section 2-101.11 and 2-103.11 of the 2013 Food Code, and
  3. Report back at the 2016 Biennial Meeting with a recommendation to Council I.

Public Health Significance

This committee work was essential to address an increase in the scope and number of unattended food establishments across the country. These three charges were critical to understanding the proper approach for the Conference for Food Protection to consider when addressing these new facilities.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

  1. Acknowledgement of the 2014 - 2016 Unattended Food Establishment Committee final report, and
  2. Thank the committee members for their work and efforts on the committee.
