Celebrating 1 Year: AMC Recognition Program

Since the Active Managerial Control Recognition Program was introduced 12 months ago, a total of 35 food service operators from 33 food establishments have been recognized for practicing Active Managerial Control (AMC). Eighteen of those operators were recognized in the last three months! All of these managers/owners understand that AMC reduces the risk factors for foodborne illness in a food establishment. The key components of AMC are: 1) set policies for food safety; 2) train food service staff on the policies; 3) monitor that the policies are being followed; and 4) have corrective actions in place when the policies are not being followed. If you have questions about using AMC in your food service operation, please speak to your area inspector.
