    During the course of routine inspections, Consumer Health and Food Safety (CHFS) staff will document whether current licensed operators are engaged in the repackaging and resale of permitted items to the general public.The inspection will make note of pertinent findings and document the operator's compliance with the direction of the Executive Order Please also note that any complaints concerning this type of activity will be handled by CHFS.
