French bakery La Toulousaine on Amsterdam Avenue and 107th street was shuttered by the Department of Health on Monday after an inspector found flies and determined that the store wasn’t vermin-proof. The bakery racked up 33 violations points. An employee told DNAinfo that the store has been cleaned.
“There are no rats, no roaches, nothing else — only flies,” said the employee, who added that the flies were eliminated after the exterminator’s visit. The store could be open again soon if it passes a follow-up inspection.
The violations are below.
1) Filth flies or food/refuse/sewage-associated (FRSA) flies present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas. Filth flies include house flies, little house flies, blow flies, bottle flies and flesh flies. Food/refuse/sewage-associated flies include fruit flies, drain flies and Phorid flies.
2) Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.
