Trumbull health inspectors issued failing grades to two local eateries in December. Failing was Charley’s Philly Steak for holding food at improper temperatures and Parker Steaks & Scotch for having deeply dented cans on the shelf. The cans were discarded during the inspector’s visit, according to the report.
Although seemingly a minor violation, dented cans are a significant health concern. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends discarding any can with a dent more than a finger-width deep, and any can with a dent on any seam.
