She said any whole larger than a ballpoint pen is considered "not vermin proof."

The whole is larger than the sum of its pens.

I think their San Francisco location is raisin free or it was last week anyway.

I smell a rat.

Seriously?  a customer just happens to catch video of a mouse on the floor.  And they leave the door open?  How can they possibly keep them out?

you could close down any restaurant in town by releasing a mouse outside the an open door and having an accomplice inside ready to film it when it goes inside

Not around here. We don't get many rats around these parts. They get eaten by these:

The owner seems like a complete clown.  Tries to deflect the vermin issue by rambling about being an independent baker, which has nothing to do with the issue.  Then he blames the customer for posting the video.

I'm sure no food service business in NYC is completely vermin free, but you have to at least pretend that your customer's health is your top priority.

That's definitely true for us...but then again, we have two pet rats.

Yeah, the owner's statement was seething with deflections and completely obvious, ineffective attacks on the customer & video's credibility. Things like "tiny" video and "3 seconds", uh? It's no the size or the length that count, it's how you use it, honey.

I'm pretty sure hipster would not eat this.

I've seen this thing happen with store owners in New York City.. It's similar to the Hoarder Effect. They convince themselves that one mouse "isn't that bad". Whereas you or I would shut the shop immediately upon seeing one, they are under intense pressure to remain open to continue to bring in revenue in order to pay the rent.

Then one becomes two. They try to find ways to handle the problem themselves but food stores in NYC are not allowed to use conventional poisons because they have food on the premesis. Then while they try a pile of ineffective treatments, the mouse population blooms.

And they still tell themselves it's not that bad. You know how you know it's bad? Workers don't even react anymore because the mice are so commonplace.

There's something oddly satisfying to me about this.  Seeing photos of hipsters standing in line for hours to buy two glorified donuts, now understanding there was a fairly high probability that some mice did a mambo on them before they ate them.....yeah.  The icing on the cronut for me is the fact Dominique Ansel is blaming the person that filmed it.  Really douche?  It's not that person's fault that you have mice running around your establishment.


doglover: Cronut?


Croissant + donut = cronut

I know, I know....it's ridiculous.

NY has even had cases of hantavirus, which is more common to the S West.   It has killed people in Pa and NY though.     You can pick up the virus from just inhaling the dust from WF Deer mice droppings left behind.

I am surprised by people who commented in the article that there's no concern about rats and mice.   It's all just a conspiracy to shut down a hipster donut joint.

Geez,  even the redneck hunters who have cabins in the mountains know to be very very careful about droppings.    They use disinfectants to clean floors and counters.   They also trap and kill mice routinely to limit any encounters.

I guess a couple dozen NYC folks will have to die first before they take sanitation seriously.

Do hipsters really eat here? The hipsters I remember from NYC wouldn't be caught dead eating anything new and trendy.

I guess once millions of people start following your movement it's hard to find/buy/eat something that no one else likes.

We had mice pretty bad at my auto parts warehouse. I set out a dozen trays of d-con before a long weekend. They all got together and had a massive feast all over the office workers' desks. There were piles of d-con and dead mice everywhere, dozens of them. The accounts receivable lady says she still has nightmares. Haven't seen a mouse since.

I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox
I do not like them in a house
I do mot like them with a mouse
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.

I'm a mouse in NYC eating a cronut, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies...

So now that you have no rats, what do you bring in to take care of that hideous, skittering nightmare fuel? Grizzly bears with flame throwers?

Fark, I'd rather deal with rats.

I'd blame the NYC practice of putting their trash out at the curb all night. I know, in the beginng they didn't have dumpsters or trashcans, so food waste was thrown out to be swept up with the horse shiat. Well, you don't have the horse shiat, so get some farking sanitary dumpsters. I know, they'll cause hundreds of union "sanitation engineers" to be surplussed, but it'll make a dent in your problems.

Eh they are harmless, unless you're a mouse. Pretty cool looking too.

Yeah, actually, they're pretty calm if you don't make any threatening moves. They can bite tooth marks into a wooden broom handle if you try to shoo him out the garage (mom tried this) but my cousin tells the story often of the one tourist (she's basically a tour guide/ tourist nanny) on a field trip walking up to her when they stopped to take photos of some landmark saying "Hey look at what I found!! Isn't it cute??" and when they looked it was one of these filling both her cupped hands neatly. My cousin said she nearly had a friggin heart attack right then and there. Still, it did nothing to the tourist and it was put back where it was found.

Some of them even catch snakes if they get big enough.

Just as bad is how sanguine the people are about mice crawling around the place. But hey, what's a little hanti virus if you can get a cronut?
