Making a Complaint

Receiving complaints from consumers is an important part of the ongoing monitoring of conditions in food establishments, public facilities, and seafood facilities.

Complaints help to give the Food Safety and Sanitation Program an idea of what might be happening in a facility.

Please note that who you contact regarding a complaint depends on where the facility is located. For more information contact your local Environmental Health Officer or the Municipality of Anchorage.
