Update: The market passed a re-inspection on Feb. 21 and was allowed to re-open.
A city health inspector yesterday ordered Ming's Supermarket, 1102 Washington St. in the South End, shut for a variety of health issues, including all the frogs on a rear loading dock without a permit, 600 dozen eggs sitting in a too warm warehouse and rodent droppings found at several spots, including the produce area.
A health inspector had also ordered the market shut on Jan. 23, due in part to rodent droppings - and one dead rat - found at different spots ithan where they were found yesterday.
During yesterday's inspection, the health inspector ordered a manager to send the frogs - number not specified - back to the dealer until after the store gets a permit to sell them from the state marine-fisheries department.
The eggs were being stored at 58 to 60 degrees when they should have been kept at no more than 41 degrees, according to the inspector's report. The inspector ordered the eggs dumped into a trash compactor and, for good measure, doused with bleach.
Also, a hand-washing sink in the fish department could not be used because it was blocked with equipment.
The market can re-open after it passes a re-inspection.
