What should food service employees do if they see a mouse?

Tell someone. Call someone. Kill it.
Pennsylvania lawmakers wanted to know the answer, and are prepared to legislate one if necessary after their cafeteria was shut down due to rodent problems.
As reported by the Patriot-News,
It might have been the most relevant question at Monday's inquiry into the mouse infestation and other health problems that temporarily closed the state Capitol cafeteria:
Why didn't cafeteria employees do something?
There was no direct answer.
The closest came from Bruce Walton, vice president for operations for Aramark, Inc., which runs the cafeteria.
He said "leadership changes" have been made, and Aramark is trying to create an "environment of care" in which Capitol cafeteria employees take a proactive approach to quality matters.
Yet the answer to that question -- whatever it is -- might prove central to the decision of whether Pennsylvania gets a tougher restaurant law.
