Magnolia Hysteria: Maybe They Should Get a Cat!
Today, the Health Department closed Magnolia Bakery for not having a second sink in the cupcake-icing area. Perhaps you heard about it? Perhaps you had some kind of yuppie breakdown?
Philip Baltz, in a statement via Eater, was remarkably forthcoming:
"The bakery was also cited for a missing door handle, a missing light cover, and several mouse droppings and fruit flies by our garbage area. These last two violations come in spite of a thorough three times weekly rigorous extermination and internal inspection process."
This does seem like a smart move, because clearly, all us sick-headed bloggers will be reading the full inspection results soon enough on the city's always-entertaining website.
By the way, Magnolia's last inspection, from March, 2006, revealed that this mouse issue isn't exactly new:
1.) Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to vermin exist.
2.) Evidence of mice or live mice present in facility's food and/or non-food areas.
