The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Food Safety and Laboratory Services conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on 5/18/2020. As a result of that inspection, and due to the severity of the specific violations the Turkey Hill was cited as being, “Out of Compliance” with Pennsylvania’s food safety regulations. During this inspection a total of 7 violations were found.

The inspector made the following comments in support of the violations found during the inspection:

  • No sign or poster posted at the handwash sinkĀ  in the bathroom that says “Restrooms” to remind food employees to wash their hands.
  • Facility is using a cleaner to wash coffee pots, and rinsing with hot water from the coffee machine rather than wash, rinse and sanitize in the 3 bay sink.
  • The Person in Charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety in this food facility as evidenced by this non-compliant inspection.
  • Coffee pots are not being sanitized in 3 bay sink compartment as required.
  • The quaternary ammonia concentration in the sanitizing solution of the 3-bay ware wash sink was 400 ppm, rather than 200 ppm as stated on the manufacturers use directions.
