Boogie reader GVE informs us that the boutique bakery was felled by the Department of Health on Friday after racking up a healthy 38 violation points during inspection. Gates remain shuttered with no sign of those super-sticky yellow notices.  The DOH cites the following as cause for closure:

Violation points: 38

Sanitary Violations

  1. Evidence of mice or live mice present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas.
  2. Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.
  3. Pesticide use not in accordance with label or applicable laws. Prohibited chemical used/stored. Open bait station used.
  4. Non-food contact surface improperly constructed. Unacceptable material used. Non-food contact surface or equipment improperly maintained and/or not properly sealed, raised, spaced or movable to allow accessibility for cleaning on all sides, above and underneath the unit.

Yikes. At least it’s not chilled monkey brains…
