Nearby: Roaches Found in Mall at Robinson Pizza Shop

The Allegheny County Health Department has issued an alert for Villa Pizza at the mall.

Evidence of a roach infestation has lead the Allegheny County Health Department to place a restaurant at the Mall at Robinson under alert. 

Villa Pizza, located in the mall's food court, was issued a "consumer alert" by the health department after inspectors found living and dead German roaches in the restaurant.

The alert was issued on March 5. Under a consumer alert, a food facility is allowed to operate for a period of up to 10 days. A health permit can be revoked after that period if the violations remain, according to the department's policies

Following an inspection, health department officials said "two live roaches were observed both coming out and going back into the crack between the left side of the ventilation hood and wall in the kitchen." 

Several dead and living roaches were also observed on the floor near the oven and on walls. A pest specialist was called in during the inspection. 

A store manager at the restaurant said the pizza shop remains open Friday. 

Representatives from the health department could not be reached for comment.
