Rodent infestations force Columbus stores to close

Up to Code

Rodent infestations forced two businesses to shut their doors. Meanwhile, at a popular restaurant in Sunbury, something else is bugging health inspectors.

The Columbus Public Health Department ordered Family Dollar Store, 2372 Cleveland Avenue, and Praseutsack AA Market, 1659 Lockbourne Avenue, to close over what it calls a “mouse infestation.”

Evidence of dead mice and mouse droppings were spotted inside both businesses. At Praseutsack AAA Market, inspectors noted that rodents had gnawed at food items.

No word when the businesses will re-open.

Over at Waffle House in Sunbury, Delaware County health inspectors eye-balled live cockroaches. So far this year, the restaurant has had two inspections for a total of 14 critical and 21 non-critical violations. Other recent critical violations include dirty pans, utensils, and ice machine. The restaurant has a follow-up inspection this week.
