…The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene inspected the Magnolia Bakery, at 401 Bleecker St. in the West Village, and reported five critical violations.
The department said it found mouse holes and mouse feces, and reported finding evidence of live rats, mice and flies. The department also found contaminated food, and food that was not protected from a source of contamination.
As a result, the department shut the Magnolia Bakery down from Thursday until early Saturday evening, when it passed a re-inspection. The bakery re-opened at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday with a limited menu.
I didn’t even know Magnolia had closed because they are so not on my radar. The only thing decent at Magnolia is the Banana Pudding…and if you’re a bakery that can only do COLD PUDDING correctly, you need to reevaluate your life choices. People only go there because it was on Sex & The City, and since I’ve only seen half of an episode of SATC, I care even less about Magnolia’s dirt-dry cupcakes with their dusty-ass frosting.
If you’re coming to NYC ever, these are the cupcakes you need to get right with.
Revoke my black card if you want, but that Chicken & Waffles flavor sounds a horror. I can’t imagine being pleased opening a bag of potato chips and being assaulted with the smell of powdered syrup and stale Popeye’s.
Burger King has admitted that it is possible some of its burgers sold in the U.K. and Ireland were, in fact, tainted with horsemeat.
This is just the latest chapter in an ongoing scandal in the U.K. and Ireland involving beef burger patties tainted with meat from horses and pigs. U.K. supermarket chain Tesco and other companies have also been affected. It’s suspected that a meat distributor in Poland, which worked with all the companies in question, used meats other than beef as filler in cheap burgers.
Why is everybody so mad? Is there some huge difference between a cow and a horse that I don’t know about? They both have four legs, eat grass, and shit everywhere, correct? So eat it. What’s the problem?
I am so over uptight people complaining just to be complaining. This guy can go straight to hell.
A student received a nasty shock as he was tucking into a KFC meal and found what he thought was a “wrinkled brain” inside a piece of fried chicken.
Ibrahim Langoo discovered the three inch organ as he was chowing down on a Gladiator meal box at a restaurant in Colchester, Essex. The horrified 19-year-old was picking the chicken off the bone when he saw the “horrible wrinkled foreign body”.
