TOPEKA — The Kansas Department of Agriculture has issued a warning that a fake inspector is walking into restaurants and other businesses and falsely identifies himself as a KDA food and safety inspector.  The KDA said that the person then “inspects” the businesses and then collects a fee for the inspection.  State inspectors never collect fees from businesses, the KDA said.  All fees are handled by mail or fax, the agency said.  The impersonator has collected license fees from businesses in southeast Kansas, the agency said.  Any business that experiences an individual claiming to be a KDA inspector attempting to collect fees should not pay the individual and instead report the incident immediately to police and the KDA at (785) 296-5600.
