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