HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania officials are temporarily closing a second cafeteria and five snack bars in the state government complex in a precautionary move prompted by the discovery of rodent droppings in the Capitol's main cafeteria.
Department of General Services spokesman Ed Myslewicz said Wednesday that the cafeteria in the Keystone Office Building next to the Capitol and snack bars operated by the Bureau of Blind and Visual Services in five other buildings will remain closed until at least Jan. 5.
Myslewicz said the additional closures were not prompted by the discovery of any problems like the excessive rodent droppings found scattered throughout the Capitol cafeteria's equipment and cabinets.
Philadelphia-based Aramark Corp. runs the Capitol cafeteria and is working with state workers to clean it up. - AP
