The City of Lebanon Board of Health conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on December 30, 2019. As a result of that inspection, and due to the severity of the specific violations the Family Dollar in Lebanon was cited as being, “Out of Compliance” with Pennsylvania’s food safety regulations. During this inspection a total of 6 violations were found.

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

  • Potential rodent harborage areas inside the food facility observed in the store due to rodent droppings on shelves throughout the store.
  • Potential rodent harborage areas on the exterior of the building perimeter observed around the exterior due to leaves and items stored near the building.
  • Frequency of cleaning in store is inadequate.
  • Rodent droppings observed on several shelves of human food and pet food.
  • Non-food contact surfaces, specifically plastic racks for holding luncheon meats and other items in a refrigerated display case are not cleaned at a frequency to preclude accumulation of dirt and soil.
  • Lid is open on outside dumpster.
  • Observed flour stored directly on the floor in back room, rather than 6 inches off of the floor as required.
