AVOID THIS PLACE - REPEATED HEALTH CODE VIOLATIONS
MIRA MESA: The owners of Cristy??s Bakery and Restaurant in Mira Mesa have been banned from the restaurant business after pleading no contest to food-safety violations.
Lauro Cornejo Prijoles and Cristina Gutierrez Prijoles were sentenced Thursday after pleading no contest to two counts of operating a restaurant and failing to maintain potentially hazardous food at required temperatures. They were ordered by a judge not to own, manage or handle food in any restaurant and were also sentenced to three years?? probation, according to the City Attorney??s Office.
The pair has had a long history of serious health violations at their restaurant on Mira Mesa Boulevard near Black Mountain Road, including sanitation, food handling and storage, city officials said. Last February, the county Department of Environmental Health revoked their health permit, requiring the restaurant to close.
During the probation, the Prijoles also must pay for an independent inspector to conduct safety checks of the restaurant every 45 days.
The restaurant is being operated by another family member.
