Raleigh restaurant where mice found is reopened


RALEIGH (AP) -- A Raleigh restaurant closed on Tuesday when six live mice were found inside has reopened.

The Pizza Hut restaurant scored a 90 during an inspection on Monday, but the inspector noted rodent droppings behind an ice machine. The inspector says the droppings weren't enough to close the restaurant because she didn't see any live animals inside during the inspection.

A contractor laid out glue-covered boards Monday night to get rid of the rodents, and an employee found six live mice stuck to the boards Tuesday morning.

Wake County's food safety section chief says in such instances, a professional exterminator has to go through the location and the restaurant must close any places where mice are getting in. The inspector says the restaurant also needs a good cleaning.
