Officer Jason Ross talks with a commercial truck driver during an inspection. When inspecting a vehicle that is transporting food, officers look for food temperature, labeling and cross-contamination as well as general food safety. Ambient temperature and internal temperature are measured to make sure the food is not spoiled. Cross-contamination violations include putting boxes of meat on top of other food items such as produce. If a vehicle’s cargo doesn’t pass the inspection, the cargo may be destroyed or the vehicle and its cargo may be turned around.
