*Does Conduct Inspections
The Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries permits and conducts food retail establishment inspections, drug store and variety store inspections within the state.
The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) is responsible for promulgating all statewide retail food safety regulations, providing standardized training to local agency personnel, and providing technical assistance. ADPH operates six health districts, in cooperation with county health departments, that conduct retail food safety work throughout much of the state. Jefferson and Mobile counties operate their own programs and are responsible for permitting and inspecting retail food establishments within their jurisdictions.
