York County food inspections: Bar and grill out of compliance

Ron Musselman
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 May 13 to May 26:

More:York County food inspections: Farm market out of compliance with 24 findings

More:York County food inspections: Applebee’s out of compliance

More:Bobcat Creamery won't be closing after all, set to reopen Friday
