Philly Pretzel Factory in Saint Clair hit for, “re-using food handler gloves as evident from soiled gloves hanging” on magnetic clip in cooler

Saint Clair, PA

Philly Pretzel Factory

Coal Creek Commerce Center
400 Terry Rich Blvd
St Clair, PA 17970

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Food Safety and Laboratory Services conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on 2/20/2020. During this inspection a total of 2 violations were found.*

The inspector made the following comments in support of the violations found during the inspection:

  • Facility is re-using food handler gloves as evident from soiled gloves hanging for re-use on/in contact with walk-in cooler (hung with magnetic clip). *Corrected*
  • Observed chip located on can opener blade of main food preparation area.

* Editor’s Note: This is an “In compliance” inspection meaning the Department did NOT determine this violation to be a “food borne illness risk factor” meaning it’s classified as a lower level “lack of good retail practices” violation. The Pennsylvania Chronicle is reporting on this inspection because we really cannot explain how this practice would not create a food borne illness risk factor.
