YouTube video closes down Ferndale Denny’s for cleaning

KGMI Reporting

The Whatcom County Health Department is keeping their eye on the Denny’s in Ferndale.

Tom Kunesh with the department’s Food Safety Program says a video posted to YouTube showed cleaning problems in areas food would not touch.

He says the risk wasn’t high for customers eating at the restaurant.

An inspector was sent out, but the restaurant manager had already shut down the Denny’s to have employees clean in response to the YouTube video.

Kunesh says the health violations were not at high risk for food borne illness.

The restaurant reopened quickly and the department plans to check the restaurant again this week.
