The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Food Safety and Laboratory Services conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on November 27, 2019. As a result of that inspection, and due to the severity of the specific violations the Subway in Rochester was cited as being, “Out of Compliance” with Pennsylvania’s food safety regulations. During this inspection a total of 4 violations were found.

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

  • Facility does not have written procedures for employees to follow when responding to an event involving vomitus or fecal matter discharge onto surfaces within the facility. Provided sample procedures that may be adopted by facility.
  • Observed a heavy buildup of a black substance on the deflectors of the ice machine, a food contact surface. Ice machine was turned off and all ice was discarded. Ice machine may not be turned back on until it is properly cleaned and sanitized. This is a repeat violation.
  • A Food Employee Certification is displayed, but the individual is no longer employed by this retail food facility. Employee has been transferred to another facility more than 90 days ago.
  • Food facility does not have a Health Awareness Reporting Procedure for food employees. Provided manager with “Big 6” and Employee Health Awareness handouts. All employees need to be educated on these procedures.
