Wok ‘N Roll in Ocala temporarily closed after health inspection failure

Wok ‘N Roll in Ocala was temporarily closed last week after an inspector found 17 health code violations, including five that were considered high priority.

According to a health inspection report filed by a health inspector with the Florida Department of Business and Profession Regulation, Wok ‘N Roll, which is located at 303 SE 17th Street, Unit 103 in Ocala, was shut down on Monday, April 4 after a failed inspection.

Among the issues the restaurant was cited for were five high priority violations, including the presence of rodent activity.

The report states that over 200 rodent droppings were found throughout the restaurant. There were 60 droppings on the floor underneath shelves, two droppings on cardboard next to rice bags, three droppings on top of a flour bin container, 91 droppings on the floor underneath shelves next to the bathroom entrance, 50 droppings on the floor in the bathroom, and 23 droppings underneath single-service storage shelves.

The health inspector observed gnaw marks on bags of breadcrumbs and flour inside the dry storage area.

The establishment was also cited for not sanitizing food-contact surfaces after cleaning or before use. The health inspector noted in the report that food debris, a mold-like substance, or slime was visible on the surfaces.

On Tuesday, April 5, the restaurant was permitted to reopen after inspection standards were met during the health inspector’s follow-up visit.
