Philadelphia Food Service Manager:
Thank you for your recent participation in the AFSI Food Service Manager re-certification course approved by the Philadelphia Department of Health. Enclosed are the papers that you need, including:
Application for a Philadelphia Food Safety Certificate, with instruction sheet. This must be completed and mailed with a check or money order for $ 10 to:
Your AFSI certificates of completion. Please keep or display the Blue certificate. Please mail the Green certificate to the Philadelphia Department of Health with your application (above).
Your Food Handling Evaluation Record Log, which you completed in class. This food safety flow chart should illustrate the reasonably likely and significant food hazards and corresponding controls (critical control points) in your establishment.
Most critical control points at retail food service establishments involve the key food safety practices of time & temperature controls, prevention of cross-contamination and hand washing/hygiene. Your food safety flow chart should be updated as changes are made in your establishment. We have also enclosed a blank log and model flow chart for your future use and reference.
Sincerely, David Nash, PhD, MPH, CFSP Marlene O. Nash, MS, RD
