MILWAUKEE - Two popular spots on the east side run out of the same kitchen, but health inspectors found some problems.
Here's what's wrong, and what managers say is really going on, at SoLo Pizza and The Black Rose Irish Pub on Oakland just off Locust.
These two restaurants have very different menus, but they share the same problems in the kitchen.
Managers did not allow any inside video, but did talk to us off camera about things like food past its labeled expiration date.
Ham was marked November 8th. Sliced turkey was marked December 7th.
Prepared food has a seven day shelf life. Anything longer is a risk to customers' health.
The managers claim new labels were put on top of old ones, and the food was not that outdated. They threw it out anyway.
