Even though the health department tends to keep quiet on its inspections, a spokesperson for the department spoke with Gothamist about last week’s closure of Dominique Ansel Bakery. The money quote: “What made the infestation severe was that the health inspector found several hundred mouse droppings.” The bakery’s rep, meanwhile, says the DOH didn’t actually find any rodents, but still.Update: DOH inspectors cleared the bakery to re-open.
