Pizza parlor on probation after reported rat sighting

Original post made on Jul 8, 2009

A customer complaint about an alleged rat sighting filed with the county has resulted in a ruling of probation against the Round Table Pizza restaurant on Crow Canyon Road in San Ramon. The Environmental Health Division receives 1,000 consumer complaints a year and 75 percent of them turn out to be valid.

I have been fighting to have millions of pounds of contaminated meat recalled that was produced using a warehouse facility that makes the PBA facility look like the Ritz. The pictures I gave to the USDA and the FDA showed RAT fecal matter and rodents nests on food ingredients and materials, I submitted documents to the USDA proving the use of this contaminated warehouse for years and was denied a recall of my own products .Why –to protect a State institution that was contracted to produce this meat for my company.
Agencies state the manufacturer must generate the recall and the FDA and USDA not having the authority to initiate this action as the reason bad food gets into the system .This is not so ,I am proof of this statement not being accurate. Even when the USDA went and found this contaminated warehouse with live rodents they never tested any product for salmonella and co-operated with the state of Florida to use possible contaminated ingredients in further meat processing.
I appeal to you to visit my blog site Web Link and see the evidence of rat fecal contamination in meats produced by an instrument of the State of Florida department of Corrections. I have been battling with the USDA to issue a recall on the millions of pounds of meat the State of Florida produced under contract for my company. This meat was distributed nation wide to schools, supermarkets and institutions. When we discovered that this Florida State division was storing food supplies and edible ingredients in a rat infested warehouse we began our quest to get this information to the public and get accountability placed on those who allowed this to happen. When you read the information on my blog you will see the validity of both our stories .I support your efforts and request your support of mine. Larry Stone

Many local papers publish the food ratings given to local food establishments. Y'all might want to consider adding such a feature to your paper. You could publish the names of the 3 highest earners and the names of the 3 lowest earners each week or each month.

Food Facility Inspection reports are also on-line and provided by Contra Costa County Health Services. The website is Web Link

Enter your zip code of interest and then be very frightened.

Maybe Roundtable employees should stop whispering to their pizzas; instead, I'd like them to reassure me that all their toppings are the ones on the menu.

Too Bad the Heath Inspection website seems to be dead when it comes to updating... It used to be refreshed with new reports on an almost daily basis. Its now been more than a month...!
