Many cockroaches at multiple food facilities: See latest Stanislaus County inspections


Multiple Food Facilities in Stanislaus County Cited for Cockroach Infestations

A number of live and dead cockroaches were observed by Stanislaus County health inspectors at two Modesto food facilities during inspections in early June.

The majority of the 2,400 permitted food service establishments in the county receive two unannounced routine food safety inspections per year, according to the Department of Environmental Resources. The website says inspection reports are scanned weekly.

Food trucks that operate under a Stanislaus County Health Department permit also are inspected by the county, though those are scheduled and done at the department’s office.
