Why do restaurants in Dallas need to stop selling wine?
Dallas restaurants have been making some progress in their fight against the scourge of foodborne illnesses, but some are struggling to keep their businesses afloat and stay afloat while facing a growing number of new cases.
In response, the Dallas Public Health Department has issued guidelines that dictate when and where food products, such as wines, can be sold at some restaurants.
Dallas has been cracking down on restaurants selling alcohol, but the city has struggled to find a way to keep them open and keep up with demand.
In a statement, Dallas City Manager Brian Boudreau said the city was working with the Dallas County Department of Health and Hospitals to determine how to manage the outbreak.
The city said it was also working with other agencies to create a coordinated plan for the city to address the foodborne illness.
“We’ve heard from residents that they’re concerned about food safety, that they don’t want to be involved with their own businesses,” Boudreaus said.
“They’re concerned they’re not going to be able to afford the food they are bringing into the city.”
The Dallas County Health Department said it is working with its contracted food safety inspectors to ensure compliance with the city’s guidelines.
In Dallas, there have been four foodborne cases of food-borne illness since January 1, according to the Dallas Morning News.
“I’m concerned about the quality of our food,” said one resident, who did not want to give his name for fear of retribution.
“I’m not worried about how many people are sick or sickened.”
Boudreau told the newspaper the city is trying to get the best health care possible for its employees.
The Dallas Food and Beverage Commission has said it will monitor the city and the county to ensure it has the proper food safety standards in place.
The Dallas Public School District said it has also been working to ensure all of its schools have the proper health care for their students.
“If a child gets sick, if an employee is sick, they’re going to go to the doctor,” district spokeswoman Megan Johnson told the paper.
“We want to ensure that we have everything we need in place to protect our students and our staff, so if a student is sick or an employee needs to be, we want to make sure they’re getting the right care.”
