The Chester County Health Department (CCHD) conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on November 25, 2019, following up on an, “Out of Compliance” inspection on November 1, 2019 . As a result of that inspection, and due to the severity of the specific violations the Cosi Restaurant in Exton was cited as being, “Out of Compliance” with Pennsylvania’s food safety regulations. During this inspection a total of 9 violations were found the same number cited during the inspection earlier this month.

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

  • Milk crate being used as shelving. Nonfood-contact surfaces shall be free of unnecessary ledges, projections and crevices, and designed and constructed to allow easy cleaning and to facilitate maintenance. Remove, and if replaced replace with NSF-quality dunnage racks to hold items at least six (6) inches off floor within two (2) weeks.
  • Deep grooves and staining noted on cutting boards throughout facility (portable and custom boards at prep lines). Clean and sanitize immediately. Resurface/replace all boards if cleaning and sanitizing does not remove stains.

  • Light near three bay sink is burned out.
  • Rear room handwash sink does not turn off tightly
