Many midstate food establishments are inspected each week and come through with no problems.
But some in Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry and York counties had violations during inspections conducted from Aug. 21 to Aug. 27.
In Lebanon County, inspectors noted a variety of cleanliness issues, including dust accumulations in food prep areas and old food debris on equipment.
In Lancaster County, some food establishments are coping with insects and slime.
Inspectors at a Dauphin County establishment found cooked food being held at unsafe temperatures before serving.
At one York County restaurant, dead roaches were found on the floor of the food prep area and around food equipment.
A Perry County food business was found to have mildew and rust on storage shelving.
And in Cumberland County, a number of school cafeterias were inspected, with one being ruled out of compliance with the state food code.
The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture oversees restaurant inspections in the state. Inspection reports are “snapshots” of the day and time the inspections took place. In many cases, violations are corrected on site prior to the inspector leaving.
