Rodent droppings in yeast found in South Florida bakery

By Jeff Weinsier - Investigative Reporter

SUNRISE, Fla. - Things seemed to have gone from bad to worse at Sunset Bakery in Sunrise. 

State records show the bakery was ordered shut for the second time, this month, last week. This time, an Inspector found rodent droppings in the yeast and a "stop sale" was ordered. 

Inspectors have been to Sunset eight times this year and eight times last year.

A roach issue was found at Steve's Pizza in Cooper City last week as well.

According to state records no restaurants were ordered shut in Miami-Dade County last week. 

All the place mentioned were allowed to re-open following an ordered clean up and then a re-inspection.
