Food & Drug Branch, California Department of Health Services (CDHS)

The mission of the California Department of Health Services, Food and Drug Branch (FDB) is to protect and improve the health of all California residents by assuring that foods, drugs, medical devices, cosmetics and certain other consumer products are safe and effective. FDB accomplishes its mission through investigations and inspections based on scientific principles, specific legal authority, and effective industry and consumer education. FDB strives to regulate fairly and without unduly burdening California businesses. FDB does this by helping businesses understand the public health basis for regulatory requirements, encouraging businesses to voluntarily correct deficiencies, and uniformly enforcing regulatory requirements to prevent unfair competition. FDB involvement in FCEC is to regulate the wholesale seafood industry in the sale of contaminated seafood to California consumers.
