Inspector finds rodent floating in sink in South Florida bakery

An inspector found a live rodent floating in a sink with food storage containers at Cayard's Bakery in North Miami last week.

Records also show a roach infestation and a "stop sale" was ordered food that was found to be out of temperature.

This is the second time this bakery has been ordered shut. State records show Cayard's was also ordered shut in April 2015.

Rodent activity was also found Claudie B in Florida City.

Rodent gnaw marks were found on boxes of muffin mix and a box of pancake mix.

Roach activity was found at the Waffle House on Powerline Road in Fort Lauderdale.

A "stop sale" was ordered on sausage and hash browns due to dripping water.  

Two places in the Florida Key’s Outlet Marketplace were also ordered shut last week due to roach issues.
