Akal Market on 329 Roberts Lane has closed down due to rodent infestation, according to the Kern County Public Health Department. 

Large amounts of rodent droppings were observed throughout the facility, the report said.

Rodent droppings were also observed on sticky traps next to the ice machine, but the facility continued to sell food and beverages, according to the report. 

In addition, a build-up of debris was observed next to the ice machine, along walls and flooring in the restroom, according to the report. 

The market also had insecure piping in the water heater closet that was causing liquid to leak onto the floor, the report said.

Zeesh. I often wondered who would buy meat (yikes!) or anything else at a place that looked like that. It's problematic enough shopping at seemingly super clean markets like Vons and Albertsons.


Oildale taken over by rodents or Muslims?
