HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – ABC27 found long lists of restaurant violations in York and Cumberland counties.

Italian Garden in Shippensburg was out of compliance for the second time in one year, this time with 11 violations.

Inspectors say management does not have adequate control of food safety. Industrial machinery grease was used on the food mixer, an operator was in the food prep area without a hair net, and rodent pellets were found near food.
