Report on the Walgreens share price

Inspectors ordered the site to be closed on Nov. 8, after discovering that the facility “posed an urgent health hazard that could not be addressed immediately”.
The inspector’s report alleged that the food in the store was “contaminated and / or adulterated” by vermin and that rodent traces and rat droppings were observed on “containers of pasta, flour and other foods”. The culprit: a “severe rat infestation”.

Walgreens did not immediately respond to FOX Business’ request for comment.
The store is the only Walgreen’s currently closed for pest reasons in the San Francisco area. The chain recently shut down five stores in the city due to rampant theft.
