The Massachusetts Department of Public Health / Bureau of Environmental Health/Food Protection Program has developed a regulatory program to implement M.G.L. c. 140, section 6B, “Food allergy awareness,”  in all food establishments in the Commonwealth that cook, prepare, or serve food intended for immediate consumption either on or off the premises.   As part of this program, Department regulation Section 105 CMR 590.009(H)(3)(a) of the new regulation reads: “By February 1, 2011, such food establishments shall have on staff a certified food protection manager who has been issued a Massachusetts certificate of allergen awareness training by an allergen awareness training verification program recognized by the Department.  The certificate will be valid for 5 years.” February 2016, Berkshire AHEC has been awarded to continue certification for food establishments by the Department of Public Health for an additional 5 years.
