Pa. Agriculture Department Warns Restaurants of Potential Scam

Pa. Agriculture Department Warns Restaurants of Potential Scam
Berks County Restaurant Receives Call from Person Posing as Health Inspector

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Restaurant owners, managers and staff across the state are urged to be on guard against a potential scam in which an unidentified caller claims to be a health inspector and asks for business information and money.

Agriculture Secretary George Greig said the caller is not a licensed agent of the state or any county. He also reminded restaurants that inspections by the Department of Agriculture's food sanitarians are always unannounced.

Upon arrival, sanitarians will identify themselves and show proper identification, including a commonwealth employee photo identification card and food sanitarian badge.

If a restaurant is contacted by someone claiming to be a health inspector who seems suspicious, restaurant personnel should contact local law enforcement.

Similar incidents occurred across the state in 2011.

Inspectors never ask for money. Why would they? Used to be in the restaurant business and never even one time did an inspector ask for money. So right there is the red flag of warning-this could be a scam.
