    Lehigh Valley food safety inspections: Accumulation of chicken blood, beverages stored in mop sink, dirty beer tap

    By Eugene Tauber, The Morning Call,

    23 days ago

    Here are the food safety inspection reports from Lehigh and Northampton counties, conducted the week of June 9.

    Each week, we highlight the inspection reports provided through the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. The department performs the inspections in many areas, while some municipalities such as Allentown and Bethlehem conduct their own inspections.

    All establishments are inspected once per year, and inspectors may return several more times if the initial inspection is not passed or complaints are received. (For more information on how food safety inspections are conducted in Pennsylvania, view a list of FAQs .)

    As noted by the Department of Agriculture, the reports are merely a “snapshot” in time, and they may not be representative of the restaurant’s long-term condition. Many of the violations are corrected on the spot prior to the inspector leaving the establishment.

    If a food provider is considered “out of compliance”, that means it has one or more violations that require a return visit by an inspector. The establishment is given time to fix the violations and remains open for business.

    You can view the complete inspection reports for any establishment in the Department of Agriculture’s food safety inspection database . To report an illness after eating or drinking at an establishment, use the department’s complaint form . (Please don’t contact us: we do not inspect restaurants.)
