California Pizza Kitchen was temporarily closed in Arden Fair Mall after a health inspection Tuesday afternoon turned up a cockroach infestation and major food safety violations. A follow-up inspection report on Wednesday showed the restaurant had passed and the company said it was reopened.
The restaurant had 14 dead adult or nymph German cockroaches on the floor next to the prep cooler by the pizza assembly line, according to the Sacramento County Environmental Management Department inspection report. A solitary surviving roach was also observed scurrying away from the inspector’s flashlight beam around the same area.
