Bug alert: lack of hygiene shutters restaurant, colmados
Restaurant, shuttered in Chinatown
Santo Domingo.- The National Consumer Protection Institute (Pro Consumidor) on Thurs. afternoon shuttered the restaurant “Delicias Campestre” in the capital’s Chinatown, and other businesses such as colmados for the presence of bugs and for mishandling products offered to customers.
In a statement, the agency said inspectors found pests that affected the foods sold to the public, and the personnel prepared such food, “in an inappropriate manner.”
Pro Consumidor said the businesses were shuttered “for violating basic standards of hygiene and the inadequate conservation of food, which implies an imminent risk to the health of consumers.”
On its website, the agency added that the restaurant will not reopen “until the conditions of hygiene and quality of its facilities and the products that are commercialized are corrected, as a guarantee that they do not affect the lives of consumers and users.”
