Health Inspectors Find Rodent Droppings, Mold and a Runaway Radish
What does this column and roadkill have in common? They're both gross yet you can't stop looking at it. We know that all this talk of rodents, slime, mold and roaches is a little weird but we do the work so you don't have to. The Florida Department of Business and Regulation found a few suspect things in restaurants including rodent droppings, live roaches and a radish gone rogue. The offenders are:
8221 Lake Worth Road
Lake Worth, FL 33467
An inspection on 1/25/2011 found dead roaches on premises, live roaches behind a speed rack and a cutting board. The inspection also found small flying insects by the drainboard. Inspectors found a piece of bread or pita with mold on it and a radish hiding in the flour. Weirder still, the rest of the radishes were hanging out in a container inside the hand sink.
2640 N University Drive
Sunrise, FL 33322
An inspection on 1/25/2011 found slime in the sink, raw meat stored with vegetables and non-exempt fish being served without having it cooked first. Non-exempt fish can't be served raw, by the way.
5720 Wiles Road
Coral Springs, FL 33067
An inspection on 1/28/2011 found 15 rodent droppings near a corner bench in the dining room.
