Dunkin' Donuts Shut Down by County Health Dept., Reopens

The store was shut down by the county on Monday, but reopened Tuesday afternoon.

That was fast.

Dunkin Donuts was shut down by the Chester County Department of Health on Monday for a failure to comply with county code, but reopened not long after 1 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, a store employee has confirmed.

It's still unclear what violation shut down the 123 Nutt Road establishment. A statement taped inside its then locked door gave no indication of the nature of the violation. A phone call to the Chester County Health Department has not been returned.

The last county health inspection on record for the store took place on Feb. 3, 2012. The coffee shop had one violation—related to exposing food to cross-contamination—and received a total score of 95 out of 100.

Patch will update this story as more information becomes available.

They probably either lost power, hot water, a sewage back-up, or had no ability to sanitize their dishes. Question answered.

you can santize dishes,silverware using hot water bleach mix, then rinse in hot water. you don't need to have dirty dishes, etc IF u loose power. no excuses!!! you can & should use bleach mix for cleaning appliances, counter tops & more. I have a certificate from the state of CT when I worked in food service. this is what they taught us to do.

Does anyone know the actual details of the violation?

I wish we would get a Tim Horton's in Phoenixville.

Hey Bridget, what heats the water if there is no power? What happens if a hot water heater breaks down? When there is no hot water, the employees of a facility are considered unable to properly wash their hands (aka the single most important factor in preventing cross-contamination) and unable to properly ware wash, at least in the eyes of the public health code. Is there something in Connecticut that we all don't know about here in PA? Surely your high and mighty certificate from CT could teach us all!

This D.D is the worst. I got a dozen of them , they were hard as a rock . The guy ,( i think one of the owners) try to give the same one back . Than he aid he didnt , i told him i just want my money back , he gave me such a hard time , i thiught we were ging to go at it. Another time i watch the same guy , put his finger on every doughnut , no glove , nothing . The owners of this place should be taught how to have a D.D Or just close the place for good . DONT GO THERE NO MO!!! Back in the day , they were good . Is the May your talking about the one who worked there forever?? iF SO , she is the nicest person . I havnt seen her there with these OWNERS .
