Latest York County food inspections: Two 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 Sept. 5 through Sept. 11.


Mister Ed's Grandstand at York Fair, 334 Carlisle Ave. two violations.

Action: Violations include the person in charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety in the food facility, and handsink is not available in the food preparation/cooks line area or in the ware-washing area. The owner said he would bring a temporary handwash station the day of the inspection, Sept. 10.
