SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco public health officials have shut down a once popular bakery in San Francisco’s Twin Peaks neighborhood last Tuesday.

Environmental health inspectors told KCBS they closed Creighton’s Bakery on Portola Drive last Tuesday because the owner failed to show proof that he took measures to prevent, or reduce, the prevalence of rodent droppings and cockroaches inside the facility.

On Nov. 19, inspectors released findings showing that the bakery had a vermin infestation. They called on the owner to show a plan to fix the problem and returned 21 days later but said they found no improvement.

Health officials add that the Creighton’s on Portola Drive has not had a valid health permit in two years.

Creighton’s has a second location in the city’s Diamond Heights neighborhood which remains open.
