Food 4 Thought - Roaches crawl into raspa stand, fumigation ordered

      A Brownsville snow cone stand is ordered to fumigate after roaches turn up during an inspection report.

      Nery TMs Snow Cones #2 on 1415 Ringgold Street scored 23 demerits.

      The small stand is no stranger to dirty dining.

      It TMs been featured two other times as a low performer on Food 4 Thought.

      Kitchen cops recently found improper hygiene and labeling practices, no hot water or towels for proper sanitation and a dirty freezer in addition to the roaches.

      In McAllen, Gorditas Dona Tota on 2812 Nolana scored 22 demerits.

      Management talked to the Food Patrol about the multiple violations which included a cross contamination of raw meat next to prepared foods.

      Food Patrol: You do know people can get sick from that, right?

      Manager: Yea, I know.

      The restaurant has since taken steps to correct the problems.
