The Tulsa Health Department works closely with the Tulsa State Fair to ensure fairgoers can indulge in their favorite fair cuisine without fear of contracting a foodborne illness.

This year, the fair will include more than 250 individual food booths that must be inspected for compliance with State food regulations.

"Our staff works hard to educate the fair vendors about food safety and conduct frequent inspections to make sure the vendors are using safe food handling practices," said Debbie Watts, manager of food protection services. "This has proven very effective in protecting the public."

Tulsa Health Department sanitarians will conduct approximately 750 food inspections. They will educate vendors on appropriate food handling procedures and most importantly, ensure that proper hand washing techniques are used.
