Andy's Rest. Scorecard: Roaches on the Meat Slicer

Posted: Updated:

SPEEDWAY TERRACE, NORTH MEMPHIS (WMC TV) - A restaurant failed its latest Memphis-Shelby County Department of Health inspection as roaches were found on the meat slicer, according to a department inspection report.

Jackson Corned Beef House, 845 Jackson Ave., failed its December inspection with a 68. Cited in the report:

"roaches crawling on meat slicer"

"meat on slicer left unattended"

"molded green pepper with sliced tomatoes"

"mold/mildew on shelves inside beverage cooler"

Owner Alice Anderson declined Action News 5's invitation for an on-camera interview. On the phone, she said she was not present for the inspection, but she disputed the presence of roaches.

"That's not true," she said. "We don't have any roaches. I had sprayed. They were already dead, and I had cleaned them off.

"But (the inspector) did do her job. I have to admit I wasn't here. Things were out of line, and they should have been in line."

That's either the most bizarre -- or most honest -- response from a restaurant owner or manager on the Scorecard.
