Restaurant Report

The state Department of Agriculture found dirty donut cases, a microwave with food residue, and expired milk during this week’s food safety inspections.

American Legion Post 543 in Red Lion was out of compliance with 14 violations. The report says an inspector found expired milk behind the bar, dirty bar towels being used to line shelving inside cabinets behind the bars, cans of Sterno fuel being stored on the same shelves with food, and a Styrofoam cup being used as a scoop and stored in a bulk container of sugar.

Greyhound Family Restaurant on Molly Pitcher Highway in Shippensburg was out of compliance with 11 violations. Various foods were stored directly on the floor in the walk-in freezer, and the ceiling of the microwave was dirty with food residue, according to the report. The deli slicer was also dirty with food residue, and sugar and croutons in the dry storage area were being stored open with no covering.

The Giant food store on Baltimore Street in Hanover was out of compliance with eight violations. The inspector noted the inside of the bread and donut storage cases were dirty, drains in the meat and bakery areas were soiled and grimy, the meat cutter had old caked-on raw meat residue, and cleaned baking pans still had old wet caked-on food residue.

Places with no violations include Elco High School and Elco Intermediate School, Chat Shack in Richfield, and Kindergarten Academy in Mechanicsburg.
