York County food inspections: This Walmart has 'massive amount' of rodent droppings

York Dispatch
FILE - In this March 31, 2020 file photo, a woman pulls groceries from a cart to her vehicle outside of a Walmart store in Pearl, Miss. The Walmart at the West Manchester Town Center was out of compliance in a recent health inspection.

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 March 23 to March 30:

WAL-MART SUPERCENTER #2205 1800 LOUCKS RD. STE. 100, WEST MANCHESTER TWP

  • The inspector observed that the food facility isn't frequently removing dead or trapped rodents. There are old, deceased rodents trapped in pest control devices within the lawn and garden areas.
  • The lawn, garden and food areas of the food facility are extremely dirty, dusty and in need of major cleaning.
  • The inspector saw rodents running around in the lawn and garden area during the investigation.
  • There is evidence of rodents in rear lawn and garden areas, even though the facility has a pest control program.
  • The inspector recommends the facility contact pest control immediately.
  • There are potential rodent harborage areas inside the food facility in the lawn and garden areas due to large amount of rodent droppings, massive amount. Bags have numerous torn or cut holes.
  • The rear door located in the lawn and garden area of the food facility has a rusty hole at the bottom area of door, causing an opening or gap that doesn't protect against the entry of insects, rodents, and other animals.
