      Rodent droppings in Chinese restaurant, warning issued at dirty school kitchen

      A Chinese restaurant in Raymondville earns the dirty distinction as a three-time low performer with rodent droppings on Food 4 Thought.

      China Star on 100 North Highway 77 is busted by a state health inspector in May with 20 old droppings in an area used to store clean utensils, according to a report. A manager, who TMs been featured 3 other times on Food 4 Thought, denies the rodent contamination violation. The Food Patrol challenges the statement and asks, Cai Yu Hui, if she simply uses a rehearsed statement whenever questioned about dirty dining. You seem to say the same exact thing every time we TMre here, the Food Patrol said. Right now we don TMt do that, Hui said. Thank you. It TMs not just China Star on the dirty list this week. Palmview High School is a low performer with 21 demerits. La Joya ISD releases a statement to the Food Patrol which indicates all violations have been corrected. A county health inspector warns the kitchen will be closed if repairs aren TMt made for proper sanitation linked to hot water. Other violations include improper hand-washing and handling of ready-to-eat foods, along with dirty equipment.
