CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – The truth is Publix has a fantastic track record when it comes to inspections, but on Wednesday, an inspector with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services was at a Coral Springs location and ordered a “stop-use” on the entire deli backroom area.
The Publix is located at 2201 North University Drive.
The inspector noted a roach issue.
A re-inspection is required before the “stop-use” is lifted.
“The affected storage areas must be completely cleared of all merchandise, cleaned and sanitized by the next inspection; no other merchandise may be added to the storage area or a Broken Stop-use will be issued,” the inspection report stated. “If evidence of pest infestation is observed on the next inspection, a Stop-Use Order will be issued on all receiving areas of the establishment and the establishment will no longer be allowed to receive additional food items, a Stop-Use Order of all processing equipment will be issued and a Stop-Sale Order of all exposed food items will be issued until the infestation is eradicated.”
