Zomick's, the nationally known kosher bakery who hallah's and other products are found in kosher markets and in places like Whole Foods, has for many years had a serious pest problem, the FiveTowns Patch reported today.
The company, which operates out of an Inwood, New York warehouse, had serious problems with cockroach, beetle and rat infestations, along with live birds flying free inside the facility over the baking area, state health inspectiors found.
The infestations are documented from the facility's opening in 2005.
Zomick's was never shut down by the state even though it has failed more inspections than it has passed because, a spokesman for the Department of Agriculture and Markets told Patch, the state cannot begin to remove a license until a facility has failed four straight inspections. Zomick's has never failed more than three in a row, despite in total passing few inspections than it failed, the paper reported.
Zomick's president is President is Gittel Kaff.
