A pizza place in American Canyon has failed its health inspection for the second time in less than a month.
Parry’s Pizzeria, 234 American Canyon Road, had 35 points deducted during a June 12 inspection conducted by the Napa County Department of Environmental Management. In late May, the restaurant failed a routine inspection with 42 points deducted.
Restaurants receive failed scores if more than 30 points are taken away.
The latest inspection was conducted due to a change of ownership, said Stacey Harrington, Napa County’s environmental management coordinator.
The inspection report included two major violations, both of which had to do with potentially hazardous food items not being kept at the required temperatures. The food items included salsa, tomatoes and meatballs, county officials said.
The facility also was cited for lacking a health permit to prepare lasagna and ravioli. The restaurant is not approved for those foods because they don’t have the necessary cooking equipment.
Parry’s Pizzeria remains open.
Harrington said food facilities are shut down if there is an immediate health and safety risk observed by county inspectors who are on-site.
The county’s Department of Environmental Management could also have an office hearing to suspend a permit for facilities that don’t pose immediate risks but repeatedly fail inspections, she said.
