Latest York County food inspections: One out of compliance

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 Aug. 21 through Aug. 27.


Hong Kong Buffet, 128 Newberry Parkway, Etters, 14 violations.

Action: Violations include accumulation of grease and old food debris on tops, sides, handles, and doors of all make-line equipment in the kitchen, old food debris on top of and under dish machine in warewashing area, raw egg shells being stored above tofu in walk-in veggie cooler, several buckets of food stored directly on floor in walk-in meat cooler instead of 6 inches off the floor as required, black mold-like residue on the inside portion of the ice machine, old food debris on the walls in several areas throughout the kitchen and on the floor under the ice cream cooler, plumbing system not maintained and in good repair, mop room off facility extremely dirty, hand-dipped ice cream cabinet on dining room floor that is not approved for customer self-service, and accumulation of ice on the door, ceiling, floor, and shelving in walk-in freezer.
