County Food Establishments Fail Inspections

Last week, five Lancaster County restaurants were found to be out of compliance during inspections conducted by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.

Those in violation were:

Citgo Mart – Subway, Quarryville

Garden Gate Diner, Paradise

General Sutter Inn, Lititz

Green Tree Inn, Quarryville

The Ritz on Main, New Holland

Several of the inspections were triggered by citizen complaints to the Department.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture said "that any inspection is a 'snapshot' of the day and time of the inspection. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term cleanliness of an establishment. Also, at the time of the inspection, violations are recorded but are often corrected on the spot prior to the inspector leaving the establishment."
