Spider webs hanging over the bagels, cobwebs in the walk-in unit, maggots in the sink, roaches crawling on the walls, a dead mouse in the basement and peanut butter cups in a sushi container. It's beginning to sound a lot like Halloween.

Raw sewage on a men's restroom floor, leaking eggs, moldy lettuce and large amounts of mouse droppings round out this edition of Clean Plates.

Philadelphia health inspectors braved those horrors and more as they closed 33 facilities for various violations between Sept. 16 and Sept. 30.

Inspectors visit nearly 1,000 eateries and food retailers every two weeks. Each inspection is generally regarded as a snapshot in time, and not necessarily a reflection of day-to-day conditions. Most violations were corrected immediately in the presence of an inspector.

A list of eateries that were closed follows:
