Southwest Michigan health agency warns of food inspector scam


COLDWATER (WKZO) -- The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency is warning area restaurants that a scam involving fake food inspectors is making the rounds in southwest Michigan.

Several local restaurant owners have reported that individuals claiming to work for the health department have contacted them to schedule inspections and the agency warns that those individuals may be seeking sensitive information.  The agency says that anyone claiming to be with the health department should be asked for identification, and that if that person cannot provide identification then they should be barred from the premises.

The agency urges anyone that comes into contact with these individuals to contact the health department and their local law enforcement agency.
