York County food inspections: Two in York Township each have 15 findings
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 Dec. 27 through Jan. 2:
