The retail outlets checked during the effortincluded convenience, liquor and grocery stores, as well as restaurants andbars.
The businesses found to be non-compliant includes: Ozzie's I-80 in Sutherland, Lincoln Highway Diner in North Platte, Wine Styles in Hastings and Legacy Bar & Grill in Harvard.
