The report said three live roaches were found in pink Sweet'n Low packets in a condiment dispenser on the front counter next to a Coca-Cola cooler.

During a March 27 inspection, rodent activity was found inside Dixie Fried Chicken located at 133 SW Ave. E in Belle Glade.

The report said about 12 fresh rodent droppings were found on shelves in the dry storage area.

They also stopped the sale of buttermilk because it wasn't being kept at the right temperature.
