Reading House of Pizza
During a routine health inspection in September, inspectors made notes of a few minor items that needed to be addressed.
According to the report, the front deli unit had a temperature of 46 degrees. The equipment needed to be repaired a temperature of 41 degrees or lower.
The inspector found a knife in between pieces of equipment and noted that all knives must be appropriately cleaned and stored on a designated knife rack. In addition, employee drinks were observed in the cook line and must instead be stored in a dining area to prevent contamination.
Other minor adjustments needed included a hand sink that needed to be cleaned, a mop that needed to be air dried instead of stored in a bucket, and lights in a dry storage area that needed a shield over the fixtures.
The inspector returned to the business within a week and all violations were corrected.
Natural Food Exchange
Inspectors checked the store during a routine inspection this summer and found one minor item to note.
There were some water stained ceiling tiles, and the business was required to investigate the cause of the water damage and address it within 30 days.
There were no other violations noted in the report.
