Montgomery County food safety inspections found flies in restaurant and rusty shelves in refridgerator

Here are the violations reported in food safety inspection reports from Montgomery County conducted the week of Oct. 14-20, 2023.

Each week, we highlight the inspection reports for retail food and drink establishments under the jurisdiction of the Montgomery County Office of Public Health. 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 MCOPH, the reports are merely a “snapshot” in time, and “may not be representative of the overall, long-term cleanliness of an establishment.” Many of the violations are corrected on the spot prior to the inspector leaving the establishment.

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