An Elkhart County restaurant was served up a surprise recently when a fake health department worker paid a visit.
A woman apparently pretending to be an employee of the Elkhart County Health Department showed up at the restaurant last Thursday. She provided a first name, but did not show any ID.
Health department officials say they do make unannounced inspections and investigate complaints, but they want to remind food service facilities that all workers carry county-issued picture identification.
Workers should always ask for proper ID before letting anyone claiming to be from the health department into the back of their restaurant
No word on why the woman showed up.
