Food Safety, Licensing, Inspections

The Village of Greendale contracts with the West Allis Health Department as the agent for the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture and Wisconsin Department of Health Services for the purpose of licensing, conducting inspections, and investigating complaints.  All establishments are routinely inspected and re-inspected. Repeat or follow up inspections may be necessary to achieve compliance with all applicable regulations.  

 Feeling Sick? Report it Quick!

On February 1, 2024, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS)announced a new online tool for reporting potential foodborne illness for Wisconsinites who think they recently became sick from a food or water source. User-entered data will automatically be transmitted to Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS) where local and state health partners can review, prioritize, and plan any potential follow up.
This tool is not a substitute for health care, and people who are feeling sick should contact their health care provider. If you are severely ill, see a doctor immediately. Food poisoning can be especially dangerous for infants, pregnant people, older adults, and people who are immunocompromised.
The information you share on this form is for public health purposes only and will be held in strict confidence. It will not be disclosed or released without consent. If additional information is needed about your report, you may be contacted by a public health specialist from the state, county, or city where you live.
If you would like to report a concern about a food or water venue that is not illness related, please file a complaint with the WI Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
