Restaurant Report: Insects, ‘extremely dirty’ flooring

Restaurant Report

Pennsylvania’s Department of Agriculture found problems with refrigerated meat, heavy odors, and “roach-like insects” in the latest round of restaurant inspections.

Pizza Boli’s on Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg was out of compliance with nine violations. The inspection report says the person in charge did not demonstrate adequate knowledge of food safety. Raw chicken was stored in a way that could contamination ready-to-eat food. There was an accumulation of grease and food debris in the facility, and there were four “roach-like insects” on the floor.

Red Lobster on Eisenhower Drive in Hanover was out of compliance with nine violations. The inspection report says the person in charge did not have adequate knowledge of food safety. Fresh food was being placed on containers that were “heavily soiled” with old, caked-on food debris. Utensils, pans, and kitchen tools were soiled with old food residue, and there was a “heavy odor” coming from the “extremely dirty” flooring and drains underneath the bar and ice machine.

Friendly’s on High Pointe Boulevard in Harrisburg was out of compliance with eight violations. The inspection report says refrigerated chicken, deli meat, and beef were held at a temperature that was unsafe because it was too warm. There was a heavy accumulation of dust on fans and vents, there was webbing on a food storage shelving unit, and sanitizer was stored in a way that could contaminate food.

Establishments with no violations include Oka Asian Fusion in Lancaster, Beverage City USA in Chambersburg, Palmyra Area High School, and Don’s Snack Shack in Camp Hill.

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