From a distance all seems well at the Bristol Bakery, but according to an inspection report from the Rhode Island office of food protection, things couldn't be further from the truth.
The report was made after an inspector was following up on a violation from June, which detailed more than 20-health code violations.
Everything from improper handling of food, to staff not wearing hair-nets.
But the most serious and disgusting violations involve the discovery of bird and rodent droppings, sitting on the same racks, as freshly baked bread.
Violet works near the bakery and was surprised to find out that the Bristol Bakery had such serious issues.
"You would think that a place like that would be really cleanly, but I guess not." said Violet.
Lynda Sprague is one of the bakery's biggest fans.
Lynda likes the Bristol Bakery so much, that she often rushes to the shop after work, to pick things up for dinner.
"They've always presented themselves very well and their products have always been great." said Sprague.
No one has gotten sick as a result of the violations, but the bakery is closed, until they can prove that they've addressed all the violations.
And although Lynda Sprague didn't like what she heard about the bakery and the violations, she says that she'd be willing to give the Bristol Bakery a second chance, when it opens back up.
"I hope that they can correct it and they can remain open." said Sprague.
