Mother Nature Has It Her Way, Shuts Down Dover Burger King
A leaky roof lead to water in the food preparation area.
According to Fosters Daily Democrat, The Central Ave location of Burger King was closed for the second time in less than a year. The closure occurred Tuesday, according to the city health inspector Jaimie Donovan, and a woman at the restaurant who identified herself as the general manager but declined to give her name, according to Fosters.
According to the health inspector report Foster’s Daily Democrat obtained through a Right-to-Know request, a customer had alerted the city’s Inspection Services of a roof leak in the food preparation area, and that prompted the investigation.
In the report Donovan states “Upon entering, I noticed the ceiling with multiple leaks and buckets placed throughout collecting water." “I ordered them closed immediately and any food in the contaminated area of the leaks to be discarded.” There were no reports of customers getting sick.
According to his report, Donovan interviewed the manager and employees who said they told the Burger King corporate office about the leak two weeks prior. According to an employee, the corporate office directed management to close the lobby but keep the drive-through open, the inspector reportes.
