They also found evidence of food packages chewed by rodents as well as droppings.

According to the report, there were also other pests like flies, and cleaning issues which have been labeled as high-risk.

The notice on the Health Department’s website said they found inadequate sanitization and food in unsound conditions.

The report says inspectors found a “mold-like and slime-like substance” on the bottoms of cutting boards.
