Macy's food court closed for health code violations
July 23 2007 (WLS) -- The food court at the Macy's store on State Street in Chicago has been shut down for health code violations. It follows a health inspection at the Marketplace in Macy's lower level.
This is one of the highest profile Chicago Health Department restaurant shutdowns in recent years. The Marketplace food court on the lower level of Macy's State Street store, the old Marshall Field's flagship, was closed Monday because of health code violations or unsanitary conditions.
A Macy's spokesperson says they hope to go above and beyond the health department's recommendations, and they are working feverishly to correct the problems. The spokesperson said they hope to reopen Tuesday.
A health department statement said a customer became ill after eating a food court salad over the weekend or last week. City inspectors came in Monday morning and found a fruit fly infestation, a leaking sink, a clogged floor drain, and grease and food debris on the floor and walls around a trash receptacle.
The Health Department said that this is the 163rd time that a food establishment has been shut down for unsanitary conditions in 2007.
