PITTSBURGH — Evidence of rodents was found in February at a dining hall at Carlow University.
Chew marks on chocolate bars, rodent droppings in areas where silverware is stored, as well as rodent holes in the student dining area of Tiernan Dining Hall were discovered during an Allegheny County Health Department inspection, officials said.
A Carlow spokesperson said the university acted quickly to bring everything back up to code. An exterminator was brought in, bait traps were placed, the holes were sealed up and the area was cleaned.
“We did respond. We take it seriously. Food safety is something that is crucial to any university, and it’s certainly crucial to Carlow,” the spokesperson said.
