The Department of Agriculture found evidence of insects and rodents, old food, and bedding during this week’s food safety inspections.
Asian Market on South 17th Street in Harrisburg was out of compliance with 12 violations. The report says an inspector found bedding and clothing, indicating someone is living or sleeping at the restaurant, a repeat violation. There was evidence of rodent/insect activity in the storage and shelf areas, also a repeat violation. Cardboard was being used as a floor covering, and several areas were extremely dirty and dusty.
China Wok on Comet Drive in Millersville was out of compliance with eight violations. The report says egg rolls in the walk-in cooler were beyond the seven-day “use by” date, and metal sheet trays used to prepare food were lined with menu papers, which is not an approved material for food contact. The inside of the microwave oven was blistered and peeling, and cooked rice was not being kept hot enough and had to be thrown out.
Congregation Degel Israel on Columbia Avenue in Lancaster was out of compliance with 13 violations. The report says cleaner was stored on the same shelf as equipment, food that was already opened and stored in the refrigerator was not date marked, shelves in the reach-in refrigerator were rusting, and a personal drink was being stored with food for customers in the refrigerator.
Places with no violations include Barlow Fire Company in Gettysburg, Sweet Confections in Harrisburg, Jonestown Elementary School, and Nutty Bavarian in Pottsville.
