Bradenton Yacht Club reopens after scouring kitchen
BRADENTON -- The Bradenton Yacht Club, 4307 Snead Island Rd., was temporarily closed Wednesday after it failed a health inspection. The club reopened after passing a subsequent inspection Thursday morning.
Health inspectors "observed dead roaches too numerous to count throughout kitchen area under coolers, steel tables, floors," according to a report on the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation's website.
The inspectors counted almost 50 dead roaches on Wednesday before noting there were too many to count. The Wednesday inspection also found eight live roaches in the kitchen and four other high-priority violations, including not sanitizing pots or other cooking equipment and not disposing of ready-to-eat, hazardous food after seven days of preparation or opening.
"The restaurant was immediately shut down to correct the situation which included bringing in a team of professionals to remedy the situation at the highest level," said Ken Nyhus, general manager and COO of Bradenton Yacht Club.
Nyhus said that included "treating, sterilizing and sanitizing all areas and surfaces."
