A Glendale pretzel joint has been shut down by the Health Department following an inspection where the eatery was found to have evidence of mice and other infringements.

Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, located at 80-00 Cooper Ave. in The Shops at Atlas Park, was shut down by the DOH on Dec. 11.

An inspector found evidence of mice in the restaurant’s food areas. The inspector also cited the establishment for not protecting food from potential contamination during storage and not sanitizing kitchen surfaces after each use, according to DOH records.

The Auntie Anne’s location, which is part of a national franchise, was given an A rating by the DOH during inspections conducted in 2017 and 2018.

According to the DOH, the establishment’s rating plummeted in July 2019 after it received 34 violation points, downgrading the restaurant to a C.

The restaurant was shut down this month after the most recent inspection revealed a whopping 65 violation points.
