Washington, D.C. (WUSA) - This week's WUSA9 Food Alert identifies violations ranging from rodents at Dunkin Donuts to McNuggets at unsafe temperatures at McDonald's and video showing rats startling our Food Alert crew.
See the video to watch two rats as they run out towards us at a Northeast produce warehouse and watch as we inspect that Thai restaurant for the signs of mice and rats found by inspectors.
