Pa. warns restaurants of potential scam

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is urging restaurant owners and staff to be on guard against a potential scam.

The unidentified caller has claimed to be a health inspector and has asked for business information and money.

Agriculture Secretary George Greig said the caller is not a licensed agent of the state or any county.

He also reminded restaurants that inspections by the Agriculture Department's food sanitarians are always unannounced.

Greig said police should be contacted if a restaurant is contacted by someone claiming to be a health inspector who seems suspicious.

He said similar incidents occurred across the state in 2011.
