Pizzeria and health board agree on use of plywood peels
Dec. 12, 2005
Nation's Restaurant News: A 2-year dispute between owners of Marion's Piazza and the Greene County (Ohio) Combined Health District over the restaurant chain's use of plywood disks that the county said could be harmful to customers recently was resolved.
The county's health commissioner threatened to revoke Marion's operational license in 2003 when it became concerned that the plywood disks Marion's uses in pizza making were splintered and unsafe. Roger Glass, co-owner and vice president of the chain, replaced the disks in question, but he contended the company had such tools safely for 40 years and should be allowed to continue.
