Roaches cited in consumer alert for Las Palmas in Oakland
The Allegheny County Health Department has issued a consumer alert for Las Palmas #2 in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood.
A Jan. 24 inspection report said that the Atwood Street store was full of live and dead roaches. Sewage leaked from a bathroom toilet onto the floor.

Some of those places included the back deli area, on the wall above a kitchen cutting board, on the wall next to the pork rinds hot box, on the deli chest freezer, near the front door entrance of the facility, and on the bread crumb shelf.
Efforts to immediately reach the owner or management for comment were unsuccessful.
