NEW YORK (AP) — Health officials have closed a New York City bakery famous for serving up delicious croissant-doughnut hybrid treats called Cronuts because of a "severe mouse infestation."
A Health Department spokeswoman says the Dominique Ansel Bakery in Manhattan's posh SoHo neighborhood was shut down Friday. She says the rodent problem requires professional pest control but the bakery can reopen after inspectors determine they've fixed the problem.
Representatives for French chef Dominique Ansel's establishment didn't immediately return messages seeking comment. A store spokeswoman told WNBC-TV she hopes to open Monday after another examination.
The TV station says a customer posted a video of a mouse in the store online.
Cronuts have become a food craze in New York. Lines at Ansel's tiny eatery often start forming at dawn, hours before the bakery opens.
