SHORT PUMP, VA (WWBT) - The health inspection report for a popular sub shop in Short Pump said there were mouse d roppings. The manager threw the doors open to show you the problem is gone.

It happened at Jersey Mike's Subs at 11444 West Broad Street in Short Pump, which usually earns better inspection scores. However, this time, it had four critical violations, plus seven non-critical, including numerous mouse d roppings in the cabinet under the drink station. Manager Josh Roth showed us it's been cleaned and treated.

"We had a pest guy come out and said they appeared to be old. We cleaned them up and we have the glue boards down now, and there's been no new activity," Roth told us.

He also pulled out an oven where more d roppings were noted in the report. Roth said, "We've addressed all that and we've seen no new activity."

He explained the restaurant is treated for pests every month and told us all violations were corrected and the restaurant's been thoroughly cleaned.

Roth also wants to thank customers for helping them raise $3,000 for the Children's Hospital in their Month of Giving. "We appreciate you all coming in and helping the local cause," he said.

Chopstix Sushi Lounge and Asian Bistro at 15801 City View Drive in Chesterfield also made the health inspection list. They usually do better on their inspections, but this time, there were four critical violations, plus seven non-critical.

The report says shrimp, dumplings, and wontons were not being kept cold enough, and a box of shrimp was sitting in the hand sink.

We spoke with the Chopstix manager by phone, who says they had a different inspector that day and that everything was corrected right away.  By the follow-up inspection a week later, the report shows everything was fixed except for one non-critical.

We're giving our Hall of Fame Award to Nettie's Naturally, which bakes desserts for people with diabetes. "Everything here is organic, gluten free, low glycemic," said owner Lynette Potgieter.

Her healthful approach to baking has carried over into acing all their health inspections. "The food is clean, all the way through how you're manufacturing, to the way it's packaged," she explained.
