As reported by the Miami Herald: "A beauty store and a restaurant at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino complex near Hollywood are battling ugly mold problems -- so severe that seven of the boutique's employees have gotten sick. "The beauty store, The Body Shop, shut its doors for renovations July 5. "The restaurant, Tequila Ranch, whose kitchen shares the wall where the Body Shop has its ceiling-to-floor mold problem, closed for renovations on July 17. "Nance D'Agostino, assistant manager of The Body Shop, which sells natural skin and bath products, said that she and six other employees have become sick from the mold the store has had since March 2005. "Neglect and, later, improper cleaning treatments, just made the problem worse, she said. ".Seminole Paradise workers broke into the back wall of the store this spring and unearthed a grisly sight, D'Agostino said. ".Michael Bloom, president of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, said there is no evidence of mold anywhere else in the complex..."
