Dirty Dining, Oct. 25: Cockroaches on walls at Shanghai Express

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (CBS5) -

If you're a restaurant owner, the last thing you want is for a cockroach to drop on a health inspector when he walks around your kitchen. But that's exactly what happened at one Arizona restaurant.

Matka Indian Cuisine had cans of insecticide in the kitchen, a live roach in the dishwash area and various foods left uncovered. The place is now on notice to clean up or be closed down.

Every week, CBS 5 News is sent a list of restaurants that have been recently inspected by Maricopa County's Environmental Services Department. CBS 5 News selects five restaurants with some of the highest number of "risk factors." According to health inspectors, risk factors are considered major health code violations.
