I wanted to know who can I contact to report a place that sells food and have cockroaches in there place?

because I bought a corn in the cup there and there was a cockroach leg in it, it was extremely disgusting, and I went back and asked the man to give me my money back and all he did was give me another corn. It gross me out thinking what is theres another one or if it was floating in the whole jar so I just threw it away. Then I found out it had also happened to my friend but in hers there was a moth in her corn covered with cheese! I want these people to get checked I tried looking for the health department number but I dont know if they specialize in that, who can I contact, I live in laredo texas.

  • Call the county health department. Look in the phone book under the county offices.

  • Bug don't happen if you keep a clean place or take care of the problem immediately. I worked in a greasy spoon type establishment but we kept it rigidly clean and up to or above code. It always grossed me out when I'd have to go to another place for supplies or extra hours and they had spiders or roaches. It's inexcusable. Call the health department and document what you have seen.

  • I work part time in an ice cream shop. We DO NOT have rodents of any kind. Call the health department and report the nasty place! I also worked for 3 years in the bakery at Wal-Mart. We did not have bugs or rodents. There are supposed to be controls in place for that. If they have birds, pests, or rats they are not even attempting to keep the place clean! Gross!
