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. 29 through Sept. 4.


Dragon Breath, 2899 Whiteford Road, five violations.

Action: Violations include temperature measuring devices for ensuring proper temperatures in counter cooling unit not available, facility does not have sanitizer test trips or test kit to determine appropriate sanitizer concentration, sanitizer used to sanitize equipment and utensils not available during all hours of operation, and food facility does not have a certified food employee as required.
