BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The “Just Salad” location in “Uptown Boca” at 9674 Glades Road had such a serious bug problem that the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation issued what’s known as an ‘Administrative Complaint’ during an inspection on May 4th.

According to the inspection report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, an inspector noted two high priority violations. Per our policy, we publish the actual text written and filed by the inspector.
