One way: file a complaint | Another way: a smear tactic with an accusatory post on a social media site. So there’s a June 2019 re-post about an alleged “maggots coming out of my chicken on a stick” at a local facebook group. The poster could have filed a Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Food Safety Complaint Form. “Consumers can file complaints against food facilities regarding packaged or unpackaged foods and for a myriad of reasons. If your complaint is regarding food consumed or purchased at a retail food facility, such as a restaurant, food truck, caterer, food store, or convenience store, that complaint may be investigated by the PA Department of Agriculture (PDA).”

Any complainant identifying information remains confidential and is not shared with facilities. Consumer information allows Inspectors to follow up should additional information be required in regards to the complaint.”

Incidentally, the food serving establishment’s regular annual food serving inspection accomplished by a state food inspector filed this violations report following the July 17, 2019 inspection.

  1. Yang’s was cited in the inspection for using TOO HIGH a concentration of chlorine for sanitizing.. LOL.. So, if the regulation says to use 100ppm concentration and someone uses 400ppm that is a violation.. Geez..
    Tell you what.. I’d be happy to know that everyone uses 400ppm concentration
