Restaurant Report: Chemicals, mildew & more mouse droppings

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Inspectors with the state Department of Agriculture found serious violations at three Midstate restaurants this week.

Inn 74 in Landisburg was out of compliance with 18 violations. There’s a history here of out-of-compliance inspections. This time, inspectors say the person in charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety. They found cleaning products and hydrogen peroxide stored near food. Raw hamburger, cheese, and orange juice were stored at too warm of a temperature. There was “mildew-like growth” and food spills in the walk-in cooler and mouse droppings near the bar area.

Justino’s Pizza and Sandwiches in Newmanstown was out of compliance with 17 violations. Inspectors say the person in charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety. Food contact surfaces like utensils and containers were not washed, rinsed, and sanitized. A prep sink filled with fresh-cut potatoes was not clean to sight and touch. The meat slicer was not cleaned and sanitized often enough, resulting in the potential for bacteria growth.

Village Market in Lancaster was out of compliance with four violations. This was a follow-up after a different out-of-compliance inspection. Inspectors found eight containers of milk for sale beyond their sell-by date, a repeat violation. The food facility also does not maintain required food employee certification records.

Establishments with no violations include Finks French Fry Stand in Manheim, York Country Day School, Monroe Valley Golf Club in Jonestown, and Camellia’s Sin in Carlisle.

The Agriculture Department has a full list of Pennsylvania restaurant inspections on its website.
