Woodbury County residents can contact the Iowa Department of Health at 1-800-222-8477 for more information about food poisoning. The new hotline has reported more than 1,500 cases of food-related illnesses in Iowa.

Food sales in Iowa usually require a license, with a few exceptions, and the rules are the same across the state of Iowa. Food safety and retail licensing programs are housed in the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals, which enacts rules, licenses and inspects in each county and administers and enforces the Iowa Food Code in all other counties.
