The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Food Safety and Laboratory Services conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on 2/19/2020. As a result of that inspection, and due to the severity of the specific violations the Subway in Walmart 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:

  • Nozzles on the soda fountain, food contact surfaces, observed to have thick buildup of residue and were not clean to sight and touch.
  • Meatballs held at 117-140°F in the hot hold unit, rather than 135°F or above as required. Product was reheated. Product should be stirred to maintain proper temperature throughout.
  • Quaternary ammonia concentration in the sanitizing solution of the 3-bay warewash sink was 100 ppm, rather than 150-400 ppm as stated on the manufacturer’s use directions.
  • The floor under the Icee machine has syrup spillage.
