A new food safety website has been launched by two state agencies in Kansas.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and the Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA) have partnered to launch FoodSafetyKansas.org.

The website can be used to submit instances of food-related illnesses and health-related complaints regarding restaurants and events such as with pests or employees not washing their hands. Complaints about food items purchased at a grocery or convenience store can also be submitted.

The goal of the new website is to improve accessibility and reduce the number of anonymous complaints, which impede KDHE’s ability to investigate and confirm an outbreak of food illness.
