A Walgreens in San Francisco’s Noe Valley area was temporarily shut down recently due to a “severe rat infestation,” SF Gate reported Friday.
The location was not scheduled to reopen until it was able to pass inspection, according to the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
The report continued:
Inspectors visited the store at 1333 Castro, near 24th Street, on Nov. 8, and ordered immediate closure of the store due to “imminent health hazards that could not be immediately corrected.” A report from the inspector noted that food was “contaminated and/or adultered” by vermin on the sales floor and in an upstairs storage area.
“Observed containers of noodles, flour and other food products gnawed and with vermin droppings on and around them,”
