The Angeles City Health Office has sought the closure of Didi’s Pizza after authorities found ‘health code and sanitation violations.’
In a letter to Ms. Evangeline A. Malonzo, OIC, Business Permit Licensing Division of the Angeles City Hall dated June 19, 2018, City Health Officer Lenario T. Santos urged the former to “issue an order to this said establishment (Didi’s Pizza) to completely stop/halt its current operation.”
The 2018 Sanitary Permit of Didis Pizza was temporarily revoked “until such time that its health and sanitary violations are all complied.”
The Angeles City Sanitation-EHS Division conducted an inspection of the Didis Pizza premises which is located in Barangay Balibago since 1972 and found health code and sanitation violations.
The Sanitation-EHS Division acted on a complaint of a customer at Didi’s Pizza who reported alleged mice/cockroach infestation. Several netizens have also reportedly seeing rats and cockroaches darting in the dining area but were not able to air their complaints.
In the same letter, Santos said: “The following facts are all in direct infractions of Presidential Decree 856 (Sanitation Code of the Philippines) and the said food business merits a justifiable risk to the safety particularly the health of its present and future customers.”
Didi’s Pizza is one of the old restaurants along the business district of Balibago. Its ‘Combination Pizza,’ a rectangular cut pizza crust had been highly popular.
Some of Didi’s Pizza’s old-time customers have expressed dismay over the reported health code and sanitation violations.
