The store received one crucial infraction for "food premise maintained in manner permitting adverse effect on food."
They also received five significant infractions including "use dirty towel for cleaning food contact surface," and failing "to maintain handwashing stations (liquid soap and paper towels)."
The last two minor infractions included failing "to ensure equipment surface sanitized as necessary."
