Complete Report - 2010 Risk Factor Study

In 2010, Wake County staff conducted a survey of 458 randomly selected food establishments from 9 distinct sectors and evaluated observations associated with risks of foodborne outbreaks. The purpose of the study was to establish a baseline of risk factors and to work with establishments over time to reduce those risks.

The study used the 2005 FDA Food Code as a reference for the study. The state adopted new food rules based on the 2009 Food Code on September 1, 2012.  The Wake County Risk Factor Study will be conducted again in 2015.
