‘A substantial amount of mouse droppings’: Calgary pizza shop ordered closed after inspection

The Pop 'N Pizza restaurant in Erin Woods is seen on Thursday, August 27, 2020 after it was closed due to health violations on Aug 24, 2020.

A southeast Calgary pizza joint has been ordered temporarily closed after a health inspector found a dozen infractions, including mouse droppings in food.

In a

written notice of closure

dated Aug. 26, Alberta Health Services documented 12 different items of concern at PopNPizza, at 404 Erin Woods Dr. SE.

The inspector found a “substantial amount of mouse droppings” and mouse urine throughout the business, including in the kitchen, office, front counter area and storage area.

Mouse droppings were also seen directly in a bag of rice and in flour on the dough preparation counter.

 Signs on the door of the PopNPizza restaurant in Erin Woods are seen on Thursday, August 27, 2020.

The report detailed a microwave with surfaces no longer smooth and cleanable, and a “cloudy scum layer” on an open container of feta cheese. Food items were stored uncovered in the fridge, leading to potential cross-contamination.

“There was an accumulation of dirt, grease and food debris noted on kitchen equipment, which includes, but is not limited to: stove, deep fryer, pizza preparation cooler, dough roller, pizza pans and food storage containers,” reads one item in the report.

There was also no liquid soap or even a dispenser in the staff washroom.

The owner has been handed a long list of items needed to bring the establishment back up to code. There is no set timeline for reopening.
