Mufeed's Discount and Tobacco has reopened on Monday after closing on Friday due to health officials finding the facility to be in violation of multiple things which included having rat droppings in some areas.

Health officials said the manager allegedly was removing rat sticky traps while entering the room and told health officials he knew there was a rat problem but "took care of them himself."

They also found a sink leaking in the back with a car battery next to the leak and observed floor damage around three sinks. Non-working equipment, unused food, boxes and trash were also spotted in the facility's back area.
