HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - There seems to be a continuing fly issue inside the Aventura Mall. 

Last week, an inspector with the Florida Department Business and Professional Regulation ordered two restaurants in the mall shut due to the presence of flies.

On Sept. 3, El Tropico and BOL also had fly issues and were ordered shut. 

Meanwhile, a state inspector found a "sewage" issue at the Firehouse Subs on Hallandale Beach Boulevard just north of Federal Highway.

"The experience of our guests at our restaurants is a top priority," a spokeswoman with Firehouse Subs said Tuesday in a statement. "The Firehouse Subs in Hallandale Beach was temporarily closed to address infractions noted during a routine health inspection. The main line was immediately repaired and the restaurant subsequently passed the inspection, re-opening its doors the next morning."

Below is a list of places that were ordered shut and some of their violations. All the places mentioned were allowed to re-open following an ordered cleanup and re-inspection.
