BAKERSFIELD, Cali. — The Hooters restaurant in Bakersfield has been shut down due to a cockroach infestation.
According to Kern County Public Health, the Hooters on 4208 Rosedale Hwy has multigenerational cockroaches.
Public Health's Safe Diner page expanded on the details behind the closing.
Stating the business did not demonstrate correct decision making skills in remaining open while being infested and they failed to recognize the risk of the cockroaches.
Live and dead cockroaches were found.
They were found around food prep in the kitchen area, in the ceiling and on the floor, they saw cockroaches and fecal matter in the ware washing area on a storage rack.
The Manager of the establishment acknowledged the facility has not had pest control services recently or in past weeks. The Manager contacted pest control and scheduled them for the same day, Thursday.
There will be a re-inspection after pest control has come in and after they sanitize.
