The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Food Safety and Laboratory Services conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on 2/20/2020. During this inspection a total of 2 violations were found.*

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

  • Facility is re-using food handler gloves as evident from soiled gloves hanging for re-use on/in contact with walk-in cooler (hung with magnetic clip). *Corrected*
  • Observed chip located on can opener blade of main food preparation area.

* Editor’s Note: This is an “In compliance” inspection meaning the Department did NOT determine this violation to be a “food borne illness risk factor” meaning it’s classified as a lower level “lack of good retail practices” violation. The Pennsylvania Chronicle is reporting on this inspection because we really cannot explain how this practice would not create a food borne illness risk factor.
