An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the businesses had been cited for the violations found. Also, while the inspections were in-part conducted by Pittsburgh's Nuisance Bar Task Force, the businesses are not classified as nuisance bars, according to a spokesman with the state police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement.
