The Canfield Fair begins in just a week and the Mahoning County District Board of Health is gearing up for its inspections of food vendors.

The board met at the fairgrounds Wednesday for their regular meeting and to discuss fair plans.

Inspections begin Tuesday for all of the food vendors. Two plumbers, 13 sanitarians and three supervisors will check connections to the water supply as well as food safety.

“We’re looking to make sure that the food is properly handled, stored and kept at the proper temperatures, that there is proper hand washing techniques,” said Mary Helen, Mahoning County District Board of Health.

The board wants to remind fair-goers to wash their hands after vising the fair. Signs will be posted in all of the animal barns, food vendors and bathrooms.
