PITTSBURGH — Burned popcorn kernels, not mouse droppings.
That's how the Pittsburgh Popcorn Co. in the Strip District is responding to a health alert for what was described as an extensive mice infestation.
That spokesperson also said they hope the alert will be lifted in the next few days.
The original Food Safety Report cited mouse droppings too numerous to count in the storage area, washing area and inside of a popcorn popping machine. Droppings were also found on top of popcorn seasoning mixers, on prep tables and in containers used to store popcorn.
The company was ordered to clean up the mouse droppings and eliminate the infestation.
