Multiple unapproved hookah operations, green beetles in sugar, and employees who were unable to identify what type of meat was stored in a fridge closed several food facilities in this edition of Clean Plates.

Chain restaurants throughout the city seemed to get the eye from Philadelphia food safety inspectors in the latter half of last month. Shut-downs occurred at a Starbucks, a McDonald’s, and a Checkers, among other chains, for reasons running the gamut from greasy residue to a broken sewage pipe.

But it wasn’t just the big, national brands that ran afoul of the Department of Public Health. Some well-known local restaurants and food shops — like Ratchada, Federal Donuts, and goPuff — were also closed following inspections last month. Even a Philly Pretzel Factory location took a hit.

But the overarching issue this time around was temperature. Whether we’re talking hot water, hot food, or cold storage, nearly a third of the establishments closed in this edition of Clean Plates had issues keeping things warm or cool enough to meet optimal conditions.

That’s a big problem, considering that a lack of hot water prevents proper hand washing, and food that is not properly refrigerated creates ripe conditions for the growth of bacteria like Salmonella. That germ, in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s estimation, is responsible for about 1 million foodborne illness cases each year. Yum.

From Oct. 16 to Oct. 31, Philadelphia inspectors closed at least 37 facilities for various violations.

Inspectors visit nearly 1,000 eateries and food retailers every two weeks. Each inspection is generally regarded as a snapshot in time, and not necessarily a reflection of day-to-day conditions. Most violations were corrected immediately in the presence of an inspector.
