A fast food eatery in Central Bakersfield has been shut down after being found with several violations and getting a 4% inspection review. 

"It's the lowest score we have ever issued in Kern County," said Department of Public Health spokesperson Michelle Corson.

According to the Kern County Health Department, Johnny's Burgers, located on Oak Street near California Avenue, found mold growing on cooked rice stored inside walk-in cooler.

They also found rodent droppings on the floor of food preparation area, on shelving units, and near an unused fryer. 

Rodent traps were found in walk-in freezer, back storage and by a three-compartment sink.

The operator voluntarily condemned boxes of bacon, nine boxes of hamburger patties, 25 pounds of raw pastrami, and several other foods.  

The facility also failed to demonstrate basic food safety principles and sanitation.
