EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) — An El Cajon Popeyes location has been approved to reopen after county health officials deemed the location an "imminent health hazard," forcing a temporary closure.

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen at 110 Jamacha Rd. was closed this week after an inspection by the county Department of Environmental Health (DEH) on Jan. 21, 2020 found a cockroach infestation, according to the notice. That same day and the next, the location underwent pest control treatment and a complete sanitation of the restaurant.

A 10News viewer reached out after finding the location shuttered.

The DEH returned Thursday and determined the infestation was cleared, scoring an A (100%), allowing the restaurant to reopen.

A routine follow-up inspection will be conducted in 60-90 days, according to the city.

10News reached out to Popeyes for comment, but have not heard back.
