Remember those videos of rats running amongst the pasties at a Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts? (How could you forget it, honestly?) Well, they were definitely legit—legit enough to get the place shut down by New York City.
According to Gothamist, the Health Department investigated and was repulsed by what they discovered. Who wouldn't be?:
The Health Department takes all allegations of unsanitary conditions seriously. Dunkin’ Donuts was closed by the Health Department yesterday because of a public health hazard that could not be corrected at the time of the inspection. In this case, the restaurant had a severe pest infestation that will require professional pest control services. They were also cited for other critical violations, including inadequate hand washing facilities and food not being protected from contamination. New Yorkers are urged to call 311 to report unsanitary conditions.
Gothamist called the location this morning seeking a comment and got exactly what they needed:
We have some issues, I'm sure you know about it," a man who answered the phone at the 8th Avenue and West 37th Street location told us this morning.
The whole world knows. Game over.
