Rodent infested cafe reopens
A US cafeteria has reopened after a rodent infestation was noted in December 2009.
The Capitol cafeteria in Pennsylvania was shut down for over two weeks when mouse droppings were found on the premises.
Yesterday (January 4th) morning the site was again open to the public after the infestation was dealt with.
Aramark Corp based in Philadelpia operates the cafeteria, which is said to be a popular lunch spot for visitors and workers in the area.
Last month, state officials inspected the building in an unannounced visit and closed it down for cleaning. They also reported other health hazards.
But there will now be monthly inspections of the cafeteria for the next six months.
According to pennlive.com, patrons are being slow to return to the premises.
"Given what they found, it makes me think twice," previous customer Todd Brysiak stated.
Capitol Cafe now has a menu available on its website for the current week, consisting of items such as burgers and omelettes.
