Sewage leaks and rodent droppings were found in 2 restaurants this week

Sewage and rodent droppings are the reasons two local food stops were briefly shut down this week. Aleesia Hatcher brings us this week's Restaurant Report.

New York Beach Bagels

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – This St. Augustine food truck was shut down mainly for having raw sewage on the ground in the restaurant.

The report said that vehicle wastewater was leaking onto the ground from a pipe part of the wastewater tank being broken off.

News4JAX reached out to New York Beach Bagels for a statement but the phone number listed on Google was not a working number.

All the violations against New York Beach Bagels except the raw sewage violation were corrected while the inspector was on-site, and they were able to reopen the next day.
