The Allegheny County Health Department conducted an unannounced retail food inspection on 1/26/21 at the Burgh’s Pizza & Wing Pub.  During this inspection a total of 7 violations were found.

The inspector made the following comments in support of the violations found during the inspection:

  • There are some cooling charts being kept, but there are missing charts for a lot of the food being prepared and then cooled down. Be sure to monitor the temperatures of foods that are cooked and then cooled until they are at 41 degrees F or below. Retain charts for at least 30 days.
  • The Owner could not locate their written procedure describing their proposed use of time as public health control (TPHC). This needs to be located and kept for future reference. There were no issues found with the pizza being kept.
  • A container of shredded mozzarella cheese was left out at room temperature for the duration of the inspection and before the inspection: the cheese measured at 64 degrees F. The cheese was placed in a cooler.
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs were found in the top of the 3-door prep-cooler at 51 degrees F. The eggs were discarded during the inspection. No other temperature controlled for safety foods were in this cooler. Be sure to keep eggs at 41 degrees F or below. This is a repeat offense.
  • A carton of well contained eggs were stored over ready-to-eat sauces in metal containers in a refrigerator unit. Eggs and raw meats shall be stored underneath ready-to-eat foods.
  • The upstairs ice machine as a layer of pink slime on the deflector plate. The downstairs ice machine as a layer of black biofilm. These need to be dumped out, disinfected and sanitized. After that, they should be maintained to prevent this from happening.
  • A DiChlorvos pest bar was found in the closet with the utility sink. The bar was removed during the inspection. Be sure to discard any of these bars found, for they have been linked to health issues after long periods of exposure. They can be used in low traffic areas such as basements with little storage.
  • The plating on the walls around the kitchen are starting to come apart from the walls. These should fit tightly on the walls to not allow moisture and/or pests between the wall and plating. This should be fixed before the next initial inspection.
  • The upstairs handwashing sink next to the dishwasher and the downstairs 3 bowl sink needs to be resealed to the wall.
