Bothell catering company shut down by health department

The food truck Dog Father Catering was shut down today by the King County Health Department for violating two codes.

The health department reported the business was operating without a valid food business permit and did not have handwashing facilities available. Dog Father Catering often serves students at the University of Washington campus in Bothell.

"Food trucks are new for us, we just started having them on our campus this fall," said Laura Mansfield, director of communications at UW. "So since fall we've been working on having a more formal process for the trucks to go through getting licenses and permits."

Mansfield said that process should be complete within the next week.

"Our food trucks have been very popular and we will continue offering them to our students as a service, while also using every chance we can to make them healthy and safe," Mansfield said.
