NYC Cronut bakery shuttered over mouse infestation


NEW YORK (AP) -- Health officials say they've closed a New York City bakery famous for serving up delicious croissant-doughnut hybrid treats called Cronuts because of a "severe mouse infestation." The bakery has since reopened.

A Department of Health spokesman said the Dominique Ansel Bakery in Manhattan was shut down since the rodent problem required professional pest control.

Bakery spokeswoman Amy Ma said a customer posted a video of a mouse online instead of telling bakery staff. Cronuts have become a food craze in New York. Lines at Ansel's tiny eatery often started forming at dawn, hours before it opened.
