RESTAURANT TO BE SHUT DOWN OVER RODENT DROPPINGS
Call it a big but disgusting find for kitchen cops in Brownsville.
An eatery is busted with rodent droppings “all over” the kitchen area.
The New Courthouse Coffee Shop on 964 East Harrison scored 38 demerits.
It was the dirtiest kitchen featured this week by the Food Patrol.
Food handlers were caught wearing open-toe shoes and not wearing hairnets or washing hands.
A health inspector noted on the report how there were “a lot of rodent droppings all over the kitchen.”
Dirty photos of the kitchen area showed trails of droppings on the food prep table and torn bags of food believed to be from rodents.
The Food Patrol confronted the owner’s sister who was present during the health inspection.
Gracie Gutierrez admitted the kitchen was dirty.
She blamed a worker for not doing her “job.”
Food Patrol fans who saw the dirty photos called for the coffee shop which serves food to judges and attorneys to be shutdown.
