FOOD INSPECTIONS: 2 out of compliance

David Weissman
York Dispatch

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 May 30- June 5.


Regular inspections:

Speedway, 55 Robin Hood Dr., Newberry Township, 13 violations

Action: Violations included spray bottles of cleaner stored on shelf with single-service bowls; food employees observed without proper hair restraints; storage containers not properly labeled; plastic cup used as scoop in sugar container; accumulation of dried food residue observed on and around soda nozzles; accumulation of red mold-like residue on deflector plate of self-serve soda machine; dried food debris observed inside microwave; several pans observed with sticky residue; accumulation of black mold-like residue observed on caulking behind sink; accumulation of dried food debris observed on donut rack and walk-in cooler; accumulation of dust and dirt on floor of walk-in cooler and donut oven; clean squeeze bottles stored in drawers with screw driver and other tools; hand wash sink not always accessible to employees; water faucet unable to be turned off; mops not being hung to air dry; and food employee's personal belongings observed hanging over packaged food.
