A Walgreens in San Francisco has been temporarily closed due to repulsive rodents that have run over it.
The Walgreens in question, located in the city’s Noe Valley neighborhood, will not be allowed to reopen until they pass a health inspection, according to a report from the San Francisco Department of Public Health first noted by SFGate.
Inspectors ordered the site closed on November 8 after determining that the establishment posed “imminent health hazards that could not be immediately corrected.”
The inspector’s report allegedly claimed that the store’s food was “contaminated and / or counterfeit” by pests and that gnawing marks and rat droppings were observed on “containers containing noodles, flour and other foods.” The culprit: a “serious rat attack.”
Walgreens did not immediately respond to a request for comment from FOX Business.
The store is the only Walgreen currently closed in the San Francisco area for pest-related reasons. The chain recently closed five stores in the city due to violent theft.
