Umami Hamburger in Studio City among 4 Valley restaurants closed for cockroaches, other health risks

Four restaurants within the San Fernando Valley were temporarily closed a week ago because of major public health risks.

Between August. 20 and August. 26, individuals facilities had their own health permits suspended for cockroach and rodent infestations and too little warm water, based on a study from the la County Public Health Department.

Restaurants and markets whose permits are suspended must close until another inspection determines the issues happen to be fixed. Closures can happen during routine and owner-initiated inspections, complaint investigations and reinspections.

The department didn’t provide information regarding the character from the cockroach and rodent infestations — like the amount of cockroaches or rodent waste where within the facility these were found.

If your food facility is closed for any cockroach, rodent or fly invasion, sewage problems or not getting water running with the facility it loses yet another seven points on the top from the four points deducted for major health violations.
