What do duct tape, tires, and lunch have in common?  Too much in 2012!

Sometimes, safety violations can be so concerning, so overwhelmingly bad that words fail to describe them.  In that case, we usually turn to photo laden galleries such as the "Home Inspection Nightmares" series.  Lucky for us, the dedicated crew at the Pequannock Township Health Department (serving Pequannock, Bloomingdale, Florham Park, Kinnelon, and Riverdale) has had no trouble putting into words some of the truly disgusting things they've found in the places that you and I may have eaten in 2012.

Actual Quotes from Pequannock Health Inspectors:

Kinnelon
  • There was nothing really horrifying in Kinnelon.
