DECATUR — The operating permit of Thai Thani at 4280 Prospect Drive in Decatur has been suspended after a food inspector found a "significant activity" of cockroaches at the restaurant, according to an inspection document.
The two-page Macon County Health Department report dated Wednesday said a complaint was received on Monday that a customer had observed a "live cockroach crawling on wall near table" at 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 24.
The report said the business owner contacted a pest control company and that they would respond to the issue on Friday. A call to the business Saturday afternoon was unanswered, and its voicemail said it was shut down by the Macon County Health Department.
During an inspection, "significant activity (infestation) was observed throughout the kitchen" including an "estimated count (adults and nymphs) of over 150 cockroaches," according to the report.
The report said this is the fourth complaint for live cockroach activity this year at the business and that the "location has had a persistent issue with live German cockroaches in the kitchen (prep, production and storage) in 2019."
