food inspections

Food inspectors in Mecklenburg and neighboring counties have been busy in the weeks leading up to the Democratic National Convention.  Not only have they been checking out restaurants, hotels, and caterers, but they're also keeping tabs on barbecue. 

Food inspectors have long been gearing up for the DNC.  But in the two weeks leading up to the big event, the Food and Drug Administration told county health departments within a 30 mile radius of Charlotte to ramp up their restaurant and hotel inspections.
