Rodent droppings found at East Side meat market

City inspector finds wet mop in hand-washing sink

SAN ANTONIO – An East Side meat market failed a city health inspection this month after an inspector found rodent droppings in a storage hallway and on storage shelves.

Management at La Michoacana Meat Market in the 1800 block of South W.W. White Road declined KSAT 12's repeated requests to discuss its list of health code violations.

Among the other demerits that contributed to the market's failing score of 69:

  • Employees had not cleaned a bakery machine three days after it was last used.
  • A wet mop was found in a hand-washing sink.
  • Cooked foods were not being cooled properly.

Mi Hacienda La Cocina

A mile away, a city inspector gave a failing score to Mi Hacienda La Concina after finding numerous violations.

The restaurant located in the 900 block of South W.W. White Road was given a 63.

Among its violations:

  • Hand-washing sink had a clogged drain.
  • Food debris was found on eating utensils that were marked as clean.
  • The outside dumpster was overflowing.

Mi Hacienda owner Pedro Cabrera allowed KSAT 12 to see repairs that have been completed since the failed inspection.

The hand-washing sink is now draining properly.

City records show that only three violations were found during a follow-up inspection last week.
