Whole Foods in Glover Park reopens after 'failure to minimize insects, rodents' in store

A Whole Foods store in Glover Park has reopened Friday after it initially closed due to a "failure to minimize the presence of insects, rodents and other pests on the premises," according to the District of Columbia Department of Health (DOH), Food Safety & Hygiene Inspection Services Division.

Whole Foods released a statement Friday afternoon regarding the matter:

We take this matter very seriously and there is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our customers and Team Members. We feel confident that our store is now ready to reopen and we can assure the community that the store environment is safe and the products on our shelves meet the high quality standards that our customers expect from Whole Foods Market. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

The store, located on 2323 Wisconsin Ave., was temporarily closed on Feb. 9.
