KISSIMMEE, Fla. - A deli and takeout area of Undios supermarket in Kissimmee was shut down after state records show it had several health violations.
The manager told Channel 9 reporter Johny Fernandez that store officials " apologize for confusion caused by that post that's been circulating on social media.”
The manager said they've been correcting the violations to regain the trust of their customers.
The Department of Agriculture conducted an inspection on Nov. 15 at the supermarket on Simpson Road, where inspectors found 42 violations.
The report stated that cooking equipment had residue on it and takeout food had been cross-contaminated. Also, a “stop use” order was issued on cooking utensils.
According to state law, when a stop use is issued, the business is reinspected until the violations are corrected.
The supermarket has been inspected twice since last month and there were still violations, a report said.
Managers told Channel 9 that they’ve have been trying to fix the violations are hoping to reopen soon.
The state said in order for Unidos to reopen the deli and takeout area, it must pass an inspection, which is scheduled to happen sometime in December.
