Subway sandwich shop closed by health department for not following boil-water advisory
Subway sandwich shop closed by health department for not following boil-water advisory.
A Subway sandwich shop at 400 E. Ohio St. on the North Side was shut down Tuesday afternoon by the Allegheny County Health Department for operating under the boil-water advisory without safe systems in place, according to an inspection report posted on the department’s website.
The facility was contacted Tuesday morning by a county restaurant inspector to discuss how to handle the advisory “but the inspector was told to call back later,” according to the report.
The advisory — which affects businesses and about 18,000 homes on the North Side and in Millvale and Reserve — continued in effect Wednesday.
“Facility has been washing hands and dishes in the affected water.
Soda/ice machine is on and in use.
Facility does not have means to boil large quantities of water for dishes and hand washing,” the report said.
A phone call to the restaurant seeking comment went unanswered Wednesday morning.
Inspection reports for food facilities in the county are available online at www.achd.net.
