See Behind Closed Doors
Address: 2782 Drum Rd, Middleport, NY 14105
Establishment No.: m4530
USDA Inspection Report: 15 Aug 2011
Citation: At approximately 0900 hours, the following Sanitation Performance Standard non-compliance was observed. The steel door of the establishment's only restroom will not latch shut. The door is warped and does not seal shut when closed. A sliding latch is on the door to keep the door sealed shut when in use. The latch has a round steel rod that slides into a hole of the door frame. The latch no longer prevents the door from opening. Without the door latching closed, there is a large gap that allows for looking in. This bathroom is used by both men and women, and is not being maintained in good repair. Owner Mr. John Britt was notified and observed the above stated non-compliance.
