An inspector with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services was at the Smoothie King on West Flagler Street last week and found serious roach, fly and sanitation issues.
Unlike the restaurants, where the establishment is ordered shut, the FDACS places a “stop use” order on equipment and sections of the facility.
According to the Food Safety Inspection Report, all affected areas must be adequately cleaned and sanitized.
The food establishment must also develop and implement a pest management control program.
A re-inspection is required due to pests.
