Restaurant Report: Old food debris, encrusted grease and soil

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - Pennsylvania's Department of Agriculture found problems with fish, deli meat, and old food debris in the latest round of restaurant inspections.

Teriyaki Express at Capital City Mall in Camp Hill was out of compliance with 25 violations. The inspection report says the person in charge did not demonstrate adequate knowledge of food safety.
Food employees were not wearing proper hair restraints, sanitizer was stored with food items, risking contamination, and there was an accumulation of old food debris, dust, and dirt.

Aroma Buffet and Grill on Market Street in York was out of compliance with 13 violations. The inspection report says the person in charge did not demonstrate adequate knowledge of food safety. Frozen fish was not being thawed correctly, shelving had encrusted grease and soil accumulation, and the facility had to throw out chicken, pork and beef because it was held at too warm of a temperature.

Pizza Zone at Colonial Park Mall in Harrisburg was out of compliance with eight violations. The inspection report says the person in charge did not have adequate knowledge of food safety. The facility was not date-marking deli meat, dishes were not being sanitized, and glass cleaner was stored with food equipment, risking contamination.

Establishments with no violations include Bonefish Grille in Lancaster, Apple Valley Creamery in East Berlin, Red Rabbit Drive-In in Duncannon, and Silver Dollar Grille in Lebanon.

The Department of Agriculture has a searchable database of Pennsylvania restaurant inspections on its website.
