A barbecue food truck in northwest Ocala was temporarily closed and three Chinese restaurants received warnings during a recent series of food health inspections.
Country Bar-B-Que, whose business address is listed as 24 NW 8th Street, was forced to temporarily close on Friday, July 2 after a food health inspector with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation cited multiple high priority violations.
Among the violations were rodent activity, including 100 rodent droppings under shelves in the food prep area, according to the report. Live, small flying insects were also found in the food preparation area.
The report indicates that in addition to four high priority violations, the food truck incurred seven basic and intermediate violations.
