    Mouse droppings on a duck and undated Scrapple close Philly eateries
    Imagine finding mouse droppings on a duck that was about to be cooked or rusted paint chips in a barrel of pork. That is what Philadelphia food inspectors recently encountered. Add those discoveries to the spoiled and rotting bar food, baby roaches crawling around sinks, live and dead mice, a couple of cats, overflowing sewerage, undated Scrapple and you have the newest edition of Clean Plates.
