The Bakersfield Californian:
Mall Food Court Shut Down Indefinitely
A health inspector eating lunch at Valley Plaza on Tuesday got some unappetizing news from a restaurant staffer: Mall management had told food court tenants not to use water or put anything down their sinks because of a plumbing issue. The tip-off launched an immediate investigation by the Kern County Environmental Health Services Division and ultimately a shutdown of the food court, said agency spokeswoman Michelle Corson. The case, she said, is more complicated than the typical restaurant closure because there are nine food vendors in the food court, all of whom have separate permits from the health department. The mall itself does not require a food permit, but Corson said mall management shares with its tenants a responsibility to protect the public from health risks. (Self, 4/26)
