WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA9)-- In this week's Food Alert, a fine dining restaurant operating with an expired business license, another without a health permit, and then there are the mold and rodent issues.
Health inspectors shut down Taipei 101 Tokyo Cafe on Bethesda Avenue in Bethesda, MD; Mauricio's on Bladensburg Road in Brentwood, MD; Cups and Mugs located in the Reston Hospital Center in Fairfax, VA; ZMart on South Capitol Street in Southwest, DC; and, Rajaji Curry House in Northwest, DC.
At Bethesda's Taipei 101 Tokyo Cafe inspectors observed, "Rodent droppings throughout the facility and on food contact surfaces."
At Cups and Mugs in Fairfax, county health inspectors closed the coffee shop citing "critical health code violations." Inspectors wrote-up the shop for not staffing anyone certified in food safety, not tracking workers' disease status, and not having required soap and paper towels.
