The health department visited nearly 1,000 eateries and food retailers between Feb. 24 and Mar. 14. Every inspection is generally regarded as a “snapshot in time,” and not necessarily a reflection of day-to-day conditions.  Most violations were fixed immediately on site.

If you suspect you have contracted food poisoning or have a sanitation complaint, contact the health department at 215-685-7495.
