Restaurant Report: Mold, reused dirty gloves and no hairnets

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The most recent round of restaurant inspections from the state Department of Agriculture show some of the violations were easy fixes while others were repeat offenders.

Mikado Japanese Steakhouse in Harrisburg had 17 violations. Inspectors say the person in charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety and black mold was found in the walk-in cooler. Other violations included old food residue built up on the deli slicer, residue on fountain soda machines, and employees reusing dirty gloves.

The Hi-Life Diner in Mechanicsburg had 15 violations and received the second “out-of-compliance” inspection in the last five months. Inspectors said management failed to control food safety and they saw a cook not wearing a hairnet.

In York, Wyndham Garden has 14 violations as inspectors followed up on a complaint. Inspectors say they found black mold, food residue in the microwave and brown slimy mold-like residue in the soda machine nozzle.

The restaurants with no violations included Hershey Family Restaurant, Blue Mountain Pizzeria in Newville, The Village Coffee in Shrewsbury and York Buffet.
