Amy Roloff may want to rethink her collaboration with Beaverton Bakery!
On this week’s episode of Little People, Big World, the reality TV matriarch and skilled baker, 52, met with owner Carrie Ann Schubert in the Oregon shop to discuss creating an online bakery together.
But last month, the famous bakery was shut down following a rat infestation, Oregon Live reported.
According to the local news site, health inspectors discovered "an active rodent infestation...in an upper storage area of the bakery and rodent activity (droppings, urine) was noted in all areas (cookie, back warehouse, main bakery processing, cake I, cake II, storage area above walk-in cooler, miscellaneous storage room upstairs)."
The bakery closed on May 2, but was reopened four days later after a thorough cleaning: Just in time for them to promote the "Mother's Day Two-Loaf Gift Pack" by "Amy Roloff's Little Kitchen!"
Schubert explained that extreme weather sabotaged her store’s sanitation.
"We had a flood...and we have a really old building here, because of the water, it did draw rodents to our facility," she said. "We have lots of pest control notes that can show we've been on top of this all along, but because the building is so old, there's tons of exclusions, little areas where animals can get in."
The bakery has been open in the same Beaverton location since 1925.
Roloff has been planning to launch her own restaurant or an online bakery this season on the family’s TLC reality show to gain financial independence from ex-husband Matt, 55, but is not currently selling any food products on her website.
