    Dog treats on cutting board, tobacco water pipe on self close Philly eateries
    What were dog treats doing on a restaurant cutting board? In this round of Clean Plates, a tobacco water pipe with residue in it, "potentially hazardous pudding pastries" and, of course, dead mice kept Philadelphia food inspectors busy as they temporarily closed 39 facilities between April 15 and April 30 for various violations.
