The FDA publishes a list of the state health departments that had adopted the US Food Code into their state level food code regulations. It may be helpful for you to review the information in order to see if your organization has foodservice operations in any of the states that have adopted either the 2009, 2013 or 2017 version of the US Food Code. These versions of the US Food Code include the requirements for written procedures for responding to vomit and diarrhea events and also include the requirement for specific actions that employees must take when responding to contamination events. As of December 2016, 37 states had adopted either the 2009 or the 2013 versions of the US Food Code.
