HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Inspectors with the state Department of Agriculture found multiple violations at three Midstate restaurants this week.
Evergreen Chinese Buffet II in Mechanicsburg was out of compliance with 14 violations.
The report says the person in charge does not demonstrate adequate knowledge of food safety. Personal medication was stored near food, there was a heavy accumulation of grease and food debris, along with black residue on the tiles near the dishwasher, and several dead, roach-like insects near the fryer area.
Waynesboro Country Club was out of compliance with 12 violations.
The report said several cups, saucers, and gravy boats had dried food residue. There was slime residue inside the bar soda gun reservoir, an issue with one of the toilets could lead to possible contamination of sewage water, and the facility does not have procedures for employees to follow when responding to an event involving – let’s just say bodily fluids.
Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York was out of compliance with 16 violations.
The report says the person in charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety. There was black, mold-like residue inside the ice machine, food was not being date-marked, clean utensils were stored in containers that were not clean to sight and touch, and there were black, ant-like insects crawling on the table over bulk dry goods.
Establishments with no violations include Cabana Grill in Hershey, the Rutter’s on Leader Heights Road in York, Cumberland Drive-In in Newville, and Greencircle Organics in Lancaster.
