Food Codes
Berks County > Municipalities > Muhlenberg Township

 In accordance with the Muhlenberg Township Ordinance #407 – Food Code  all retail food establishments (including temporary and food truck vendors) must submit an application and remit annual fees for the renewal of their health license.  The food licensing program is designed to ensure compliance with the Department of Agriculture Charter as published by the Bureau of Food Safety and Laboratory Services, Division of Food Safety.

The Food Code is a model for safeguarding public health and ensuring food is unadulterated and honestly presented when offered to the consumer.  It represents FDA's best advice for a uniform system of provisions that address the safety and protection of food offered at retail and in food service.

Retail food establishments must complete a Health License Application and the PA Dept. of Agriculture Application below.  See form(s) for instructions for submission.

Inspections are a "snapshot" of the day and time of the inspection. Also, at the time of the inspection, violations are recorded but are often corrected on the spot prior to the inspector leaving the facility.

Inspection results are posted as inspections are conducted, and only represent eating and drinking establishments and retail food establishments that fall under the inspection jurisdiction of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, and those county and local health departments which have elected to post results. Currently, over 60 local health department inspection results can be found on the department's website.

Searching: If the facility you are searching for cannot be found on the website, check the listing of County and Local Health Departments, to determine if the facility is in a county or local jurisdiction, and contact them directly to inquire about availability of inspection results.
