Everyone knows that some restaurants just don’t seem like they would pass a health inspection. Especially those Chinese restaurants on every corner that make you wonder how they can possibly sell chicken fried rice for that cheap. So, it’s no surprise to say that there are some absolutely terrifying health violation stories. Check out these stories from health inspectors and their family members.

Former Inspector here. I once discovered a rat infestation in the kitchen of a hospital. They asked me if I could prove my “suspicions.” I pointed out the numerous foodstuffs with 1″-2″ circular holes chewed in them, but they didn’t seem convinced. I showed them the trail of droppings and footprints coming and going from a hole in the floor drain, but they didn’t seem convinced. I showed them the three dead rats I had discovered under and around equipment. I think they began to believe me at that point. Citations included rat infestation, and absolutely deplorable cleaning practices. (SuperDaveP270)
Used to have a job working as an inspector for storage tanks at places like dairies and factories. Went to a cheesecake factory once to test a milk storage tank. It had just been cleaned and was being prepped to be filled with a tanker full of milk. I noticed the floor of the tank was covered in bleach. It turned out, the floor manager couldn’t be arsed to spend the time sucking out the rest of the cleaning fluid used in the cleaning process and, as standard, just filled the tank with milk on top of a dozen gallons of bleach. His theory was, that there was enough milk to dilute the bleach to acceptable consumption levels. (karadan100)
Worked in an restaurant … sitting in the office one day I hear an awful squeaking / shrieking noise. Took me a little while to find the source.
Source turned out to be a mouse…stuck in some old spilled pancake syrup under a storage shelf…being eaten alive by the mouse stuck next to it (cdangelo27)
