State health inspectors ordered the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in North Miami Beach shut because of a roach infestation in the retail section of the facility.
The discovery was made during a routine, unannounced inspection at 590 NE 167th Street Wednesday afternoon, said Dr. John Fruin, the head of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
Fruin said no evidence of roaches was found in the production area of the facility. It was allowed to remain open.
Raid fumigators were found at the back of the facility.
Franchise owner Nat Siegal first told Local 10's Jeff Weinsier the facility was closed for repairs. Signs on the doors stated it was closed until Thursday.
"I'm repairing a lot of equipment right now," he said.
But Siegal later said the inspector asked them to shut down the retail area to sanitize it.
"We're doing everything they've asked us," said Siegal. "If we had a problem, I think they would have shut down our production. One insect is too many, and I'll leave it at that."
