PA restaurant inspection findings to be listed online

Written by The Associated Press | Jan 7, 2013 12:34 PM

(Pittsburgh) — Sometime in the next year, diners should be able to go online to check out the cleanliness of every restaurant across Pennsylvania. 


The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is working on a system to collect thousands of restaurant inspection reports each month from counties and municipalities. The reports will be posted on the agriculture department's website.

The department itself conducts about 40,000 inspections of restaurants in places that do not have their own inspection programs. Those reports are already available online.

But about 60,000 other restaurant inspections are handled locally. The goal is to put all of them on the agriculture department's website, too.
