Health Department Finds Critical Violations in East Pikeland Businesses

The Chester County Health Department has released its food inspection reports from October.

The following East Pikeland businesses were inspected by the Chester County Health Department in the month of October. An important caveat: the language of these reports can be misleading, as they often describe potential problems as actual problems. For example, “presence of rodents/insects” could mean there's an infestation, or it might just mean the business in question left a back door open—which could lead to an infestation. 

The results of each of the county's 2012 health inspections are available here.
