Goodwill Industries' 30,000 square-foot warehouse in San Francisco has been hit with a nasty case of the bedbugs. The company had destroyed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of donated clothes to prevent the spread of the critters to Goodwill's 21 stores in San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties. Exterminators have addressed the situation, and there's no evidence that the bugs have spread. The Burlingame warehouse is under investigation today. [SF Biz Times]
