      Food 4 Thought - 'Beware' of dirty San Juan raspa stand

      Food Patrol fans are questioning how an Alamo raspa stand was caught with high demerits.

      Snow Ball Express on 108 North I Road scored 28 demerits on a health inspection report.

      People like Juan Luevanos were shocked to hear how a small eatery with limited food products could keep its kitchen in dirty conditions.

      Oh my God, Luevanos said. It makes me want to pull back and throw it [raspa] in the trash can or something.

      Kitchen cops found food on the floor, improper hand-washing, no hairnet use and improper handling of foods.

      They were just some of the violations.

      The Food Patrol went looking for answers.

      Staff inside allowed cameras to peek around.
