Ant infestation, food cooling issues hinder North Side meat market

A meat market on the city’s North Side was written up last month after ants were found crawling on its sink, walls, prep tables and a cinnamon container.

Dona Concha, located in the 3300 block of West Avenue, received a score of 72 and was also cited for not cooling food properly.

The market’s food prep tables and utensil bins also had food debris on them, Metropolitan Health records show.

The establishment was ordered to go through a re-inspection.
