DHEC looking to cut restaurant inspections

Posted by Chris Haire on Thu, Feb 12, 2009 at 7:32 AM

It's time to stock up on Pepto, DHEC is considering cutting back on restaurant inspections in order to save money, according to an AP report. Currently, restaurants are supposed to receive two surprise visits a year. If the new policy is put in place, those visits would drop to one. Two? One? What's the difference. Not much. 

However, paragraph kind of struck me as funny:

But most restaurants regulate their safety practices carefully because they know an outbreak of food-borne illness will ruin their businesses, said Tom Sponseller, president and CEO of the Hospitality Association of South Carolina.

Yeah and most peanut plants know that selling Grade Ass peanut butter would turn customers off? Don't even get me started on banks. 

Who needs anarchy when you have deregulation.
