Bugs and mice are in full force in this edition of Clean Plates.

There was a live mouse in a trap, ants were found in rice containers, dead house flies were found in a bacon storage pan in a walk-in cooler, and roaches were everywhere.

On a more serious note, there were plenty of violations for food held in less that optimal conditions. Half a pot of spoiled rice was found in the rice cooker; a swollen creamer container with a June date was still in a display refrigerator; bacon, chicken strips, and steaks were left uncovered and food including pastelillos, tuna salad, chicken salad, macaroni and seafood salad were not held at the required temperature.

Food that is not properly refrigerated creates ideal conditions for Salmonella, the bacteria linked to food poisoning, to grow.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that salmonella causes 1 million foodborne illness cases every year in the U.S.

From July 1 to July 15, Philadelphia health inspectors closed at least 30 facilities for various violations.

Inspectors visit nearly 1,000 eateries and food retailers every two weeks. Each inspection is generally regarded as a snapshot in time, and not necessarily a reflection of day-to-day conditions. Most violations were corrected immediately in the presence of an inspector.
