A health inspector makes quite the discovery at Little Ones Discovery Center on 909 South Jackson in Pharr.
The facility is busted with roach feces inside some plastic containers below the sink, according to the report. They were thrown away.
19 demerits were found.
The Food Patrol was allowed to tour the contaminated area in question.
The owner TMs mother, Ana Villarreal, who also works in the kitchen, claimed there were never any roaches.
I wasn TMt here that day, she said.
Then why were the containers thrown away? the Food Patrol asked.
Pero it wasn TMt roach poop, Ana said. I know cucaracha poop.
