CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Samuel J. Crumbine Consumer Protection Award recognizes achievement
in providing outstanding food protection services to communities and recognizes
Hamilton County Public Health as its 2013 winner.
The Crumbine Award, sponsored by the Conference for Food Protection, is a
prestigious international award given annually to local environmental health
jurisdictions that demonstrate excellence and continual improvement in a
comprehensive food protection program.
The purpose of the award is to encourage
improvement and stimulate public interest in food service sanitation. The award
is named in honor of Dr. Samuel J. Crumbine (1862 –
1954, and an 1888 graduate of the Cincinnati College of Medicine and Surgery),
a sanitarian-physician and public health pioneer who was renowned for his
innovative methods of improving public health protection.
Since 1955, the Award has been presented annually to one local
governmental health agency that has demonstrated unsurpassed achievement in
providing outstanding food protection services to its community.
"This is the preeminent award in food protection, so naturally we're thrilled,"
says Hamilton County Health Commissioner Tim Ingram. "We have worked extremely
hard to develop a program that not only protects the citizens of Hamilton
County, but also works closely with our partners in the food service industry
with an emphasis on education over enforcement."
Criteria for an award-winning program include:
Sustained excellence as
documented by specific outcomes and achievements and evidenced by
continual improvements in the components of a comprehensive program;
improvements in planning, managing and evaluating a comprehensive program;
Innovative and effective
use of program methods and problem solving to identify and reduce risk
factors that are known to cause foodborne illness; and
targeted outreach, forming partnerships and participating in forums that
foster communication and information exchange among regulators, industry
and consumer representatives.
