Gimme Some Sugar Sweet Company has been closed by Kern County Public Health due to a "active vermin infestation."

According to Kern County Public Health, the bakery "is operating with [an] active vermin infestation". In the inspection, officials noted "gross amount of rodent droppings in kitchen and equipment/utensil storage area." Officials also noted debris on the floors, shelving units, refrigerator, and freezer unit.

Kern County Public Health says in the report that Gimme Some Sugar must receive a sanitary survey by a licensed pest control company. The report also notes that the bakery must be deep cleaned and all food contact surfaces must be sanitized prior to reopening.
