Problems plague food safety system

Tim Darragh and Christopher Schnaars of The (Allentown) Morning Call uses restaurant inspection data to investigate food safety in Lehigh Valley and Pennsylvania. They found that Pennsylvania's "patchwork of food safety laws and public health agencies often fails to provide even minimal monitoring of restaurants and food retailers." School cafeterias scored well on recent inspections. "The schools averaged 97.7 out of a possible 100 on recent food inspection scores, better than the average for all establishments." The investigation includes a side bar explaining how they got their data.
