What do bingo halls, grocery stores, gas stations, garden centers and frozen dessert shops have in common? Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) staff work with each establishment to ensure they follow appropriate regulations intended to protect consumers.
“On any given day, there’s a good chance you will receive products or services from an establishment that VDACS touches,” said VDACS Commissioner Sandy Adams. “We may not be the most visible agency in Virginia, but our dedicated staff are prominent defenders of consumer safety and value.”
In observance of National Consumer Protection Week March 5-11, below are the many ways VDACS looks out for Virginia’s consumers:
Protecting the Food You Eat
Ensuring Safety and Value in the Products You Buy
Safeguarding the Services You Receive
