The Amador County Retail Food Facility Program is a State mandated program that governs the operation and maintenance of retail food facilities including restaurants, markets and other establishments selling food to the public for consumption. As part of the California Health and Safety Code, the California Retail Food Code (CalCode), sets sanitation standards to assure that food provided to the public will be pure, safe, and unadulterated.


Department activities for this program include, but are not limited to, plan review of all new and remodeled food facilities, permitting of active facilities, performance of annual inspections*, review and response to consumer complaints and investigation of food borne illness.

If you have a complaint please call (209) 223-6439.

*Results of food facility inspections can be viewed at the individual restaurants/retail food facilities in Amador County. They can also be viewed or obtained at the Amador County Environmental Health Department.
