Los Tacos De Huicho, a Mexican restaurant in Bakerfield, California, was shut down by Kern County Public Health officials on Friday, Aug. 1, after rodent droppings and improperly stored food were found, according to an inspection report.
The report said that the droppings were found in a back storage area for food. An open container of raw shrimp was observed on a table without proper covering, according to KGET-TV.
Moreover, eggs were found stored above other foods.
“Keep eggs in the bottommost portion of the refrigerator to prevent cross contamination and the risk of food borne illness,” inspectors wrote in the report.
Los Tacos De Huicho received a score of 71 percent. On its two previous inspections, in April and November, the restaurant received a score of 97 percent.
