***ALL FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS ARE REQUIRED TO POST A HEIMLICH CONSUMER ADVISORY***
Other advisories that may need to be posted in a food establishment are raw animal protein warnings and the buffet (get a new plate for each trip to the line) advisories. These must be posted if the conditions exist which would make them necessary. For example, your establishment would not need a buffet plate warning if you do not have a buffet. But if you are serving any type of raw or undercooked animal protein such as raw fish sushi, raw oysters, raw egg dressings, or cooked-to-order hamburgers, the establishment is required to have a warning visible to the consumer of the possible health risks involved in consuming these products. The following is an example of a raw animal protein warning:
There is a risk associated with consuming raw animal protein. If you have chronic illness of the liver, stomach, blood, or have immune disorders, you are at greater risk of serious illness from consuming these products and should eat them fully cooked. If unsure of your risk, consult a physician.
