Do grocery stores in NH's two biggest cities pass muster during health inspections?

MANCHESTER - Officials in Massachusetts closed a supermarket in Roxbury on Tuesday after finding evidence of mice and rodent feces throughout the building, including in a food preparation area.

The incident prompted NH1 News to look a little closer at inspections of supermarkets in New Hampshire's two largest cities.

And while nothing as serious as rodents was flagged, the Market Basket on Elm Street was cited last year for an insect infestation.

"The facilities outer openings have not been tightly sealed to the outside to prevent the entry of pests," state records indicate.

That inspection dated to June of 2015 and the store passed inspection despite the problem. By November, the store's only violation was about food that was not kept to temperature.

Meanwhile, in the state's second largest city, Nashua, all grocery stores had minimal infractions and all passed inspection within the past year.
