200 was the number when the city's health inspectors stop counting the fruit flies that infest the State Street Macy's food court. According to the Consumerist and Chicago Tribune, the city health inspectors shut down the lower-level food court of the Macy's State Street on Monday, following a recent inspection after a customer complained that s/he became sick from their pre-packaged salad.
Apparently the Macy's employees didn't find it problematic when:
a) fruit flies flew around freely
b) a sink leaked
c) a floor drain clogged up, sending the waste water backward (i.e., up to the kitchen floor)
d) grease and bits of food covered the area around the inside trash bin
As of Tuesday, the food court was still closed. It's sort of pathetic that a name-brand department store gets its food court shut down; after all, it's not a neighborhood burrito place of questionable repute.
