Cockroaches shut down 3 restaurants in Walnut, South El Monte – California News


Three restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley were temporarily closed last week due to major public health hazards.

Between July 30 and Aug. 5, those facilities had their health permits suspended for cockroach infestations, according to a report from the Los Angeles County Public Health Department.

Restaurants and markets whose permits are suspended must close until another inspection determines the problems have been fixed. Closures can occur during routine and owner-initiated inspections, complaint investigations and reinspections.

The department did not provide details about the nature of the cockroach infestations — like the number of cockroaches and where in the facility they were found.

If a food facility is closed for a cockroach, rodent or fly infestation, sewage problems or for not having any water running through the facility it loses an additional seven points on top of the four points deducted for major health violations. Any time two major health hazards, such as unsafe food temperatures, are observed, the facility loses an additional three points in its inspection score.

Here are the food facilities that were temporarily closed. Unless otherwise noted, the grades listed for the facilities were received on the same day they were closed.
