The Allegheny County Health Department issued a consumer alert for Original Milano's Pizza in Oakland for various violations, including detection of mouse droppings.

The report indicated “numerous mouse droppings observed under the upstairs hand sink. Some droppings also observed along walls under counters near kitchen hand sink, along walls in basement.”

A pest company last visited the pizzeria Sept. 26, the report said.

Inspectors noted 18 violations, including five high-risk infractions, during an inspection of the Fifth Avenue restaurant Thursday, according to a county report.

Other problems included improper cooling procedures for foods and an employee observed packaging pre-made salads into to-go containers with bare hands.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
