When I worked in Lexington one of our station anchors was responsible for turning a weekly story revealing the worst health department inspections. "Restaurant Report Card" always turned up some interesting stuff, but my favorite was reports of seeing rodent droppings and mice running in kitchens. Nasty...

Approximately 10% of food poisoning is from home cooked meals, 25% from restaurants, and 65% from grocery stores. You wouldn't believe the daily violations at Krogers and that's one of the cleanest groceries in the area.
