BRIDGEPORT - A Maplewood Avenue deli is facing a $570 civil penalty from the federal Food and Drug Administration after inspectors found two violations of tobacco sale law in less than a year, reports said.

The Sunshine Kitchen and Deil located at 999 Maplewood Ave. first drew the attention of authorities after an FDA inspector found evidence that the store was selling single cigarettes in March 2018, reports said.

Documents related to the complaint indicated that during the inspection which took place on March 21, 2018, the inspector found open packages of Newport and Marlborough cigarettes.
