The state Department of Agriculture conducts annual inspections of food-serving businesses to ensure public safety and safe food-handling practices. Schools are inspected twice per year, according to the Bureau of Food Safety and Laboratories.

Whether an establishment is considered compliant or non-compliant is the discretion of the inspector. There are, however, several violations for which inspectors should automatically consider establishments non-compliant. Called "critical violations," they include food temperature issues, employee hygiene and issues with chemicals and how they're handled.

Depending on the severity of the situation, inspectors and their supervisors could file citations or close an establishment.

Below is a list of establishments that were inspected Sept. 7-13.


Regular inspections:

New China Family Restaurant, 565 S. Main St., Shrewsbury, 11 violations

Action: Violations included food not being date marked; food in walk-in cooler stored open with no covering; in-use knives and cleavers stored between table edges; plastic containers being used as food scoops; handles of walk-in units soiled with food and dirt residue; fryers and grill equipment soiled with accumulation of food debris, dirt, encrusted grease and standing water; grease accumulation around grease tank; refrigeration unit observed with large accumulation of ice build-up; ceiling lights in dining room not shielded or shatter proof; entrance door propped open; cooks line floor extremely dirty; and large amount of grease dripping along top area of hood vents, walls and suppression lines.
