When Prince George's County inspector Amend Kpadeh recently visited Greenbelt Middle School, the list of violations mounted as he moved through the kitchen: . . .
And this school is not alone. News4'a review reveals 17 other Prince George's County schools have had rodents in the kitchen in the past two years, and six had roaches.
But after school administrators learned what we saw in Greenbelt's kitchen, the new Food Services Director took action. He instituted new rules for every school: cafeterias must be inspected daily so rodent problems don't go unnoticed.
"I hope to be known as the pest Nazi. No one is more concerned than myself or food service staff and we're going to stay on top of this every day and make sure it's a non-problem," Kpadeh said.
