Walters Food Mart, located in the 2100 block of Burnet Street, scored a 67 and was ordered to go through a re-inspection after a list of write-ups that also included engine coolant being kept near single-use items.

The establishment also had a clogged sink and food debris was found on a cheese slicer, Metropolitan Health records show.
