County Market closed 2 2.1.18

The Macon County Health Department temporarily closed the County Market on Pershing Road Feb 1.

A Decatur grocery store closed by the Macon County Health Department last week was found to be in compliance with code, records released Wednesday show.

The County Market at 1400 E. Pershing Road was shut down on Feb. 1.

County inspectors in January found the presence of rodents and were told by employees steps were taken. Earlier this month, damaged packaging and “many feces piles on shelves” were found, according to the inspection documents.

The county received a complaint about the rodents in December. Gerry Kettler, director of consumer affairs for parent company Niemann Foods, last week said they were “working closely with the health department to fix the problem.”

Store officials were required to sanitize all shelving and the supermarket later reopened.
