Restaurant Report: Pink, slimy mold and bird nests

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The state Department of Agriculture said the first establishment in this week’s report should have self-reported and stopped operations, but that didn’t happen.

Crider Meats in Shippensburg was inspected after a complaint. It was out of compliance with 19 violations.

The report says the person in charge failed to notify the department of an imminent health hazard, including a roof leak, product contamination, and bird nests within the facility. The inspector says management does not have adequate control of food safety. The facility had been operating without a current license for more than 50 days. Flies were observed hovering over “most areas” of the facility and the exhaust fan was encrusted with wet residues and old grease.

Ruby Tuesday on Kenneth Road in York was out of compliance with 14 violations.

The report says the person in charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety. The inspector observed between 50 and 150 live ant-like insects on the wall and floor in the oven area, pink, slimy mold-like residue in the ice machines, and the mechanical warewashing equipment had a build up of filth and food residue.

Camp Joy El in Greencastle was out of compliance with 10 violations.

The report says food was stored at too warm of a temperature. The facility is using a non-public water system but does not have current laboratory testing results for water drinking safety. There were static dust and rust residue on the ceiling and the facility does not have procedures for employees to follow when responding to an event involving bodily fluids.

Beck’s Bay Steamed Crabs in Fairfield, Pasta Plus in Manheim, Paddy’s Seafood in Dallastown, and Three Sisters Deli in Lemoyne had no violations.

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