    David Dobrik’s Doughbrik’s Pizza Receives B Grade from LA Department of Public Health

    A County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health inspection of David Dobrik‘s Doughbrik’s Pizza in West Hollywood did not go well on June 10, 2024. The gourmet pizzeria owned by the popular YouTuber was struck with B grading this month due to “sewage discharge” issues after someone filed a complaint.

    Summary of Violations include:

    1. Demonstration of Knowledge (Violation #01a) Inspectors noted that Doughbrick’s Pizza employees lacked adequate knowledge of major food allergens and were unable to demonstrate appropriate food safety principles related to their assigned duties. This violation falls under the California Health & Safety Code § 113947. Specific issues included employees’ inability to properly explain Time as a Public Health Control (TPHC) procedures for pizza items and the absence of a TPHC log for both the cooked pizza items on display and those in the rear holding area.

    2. Food Safety Certification (Violation #01b) The inspection revealed that Doughbrick’s Pizza did not have an employee with a valid food safety certification present at the time of the inspection. Additionally, there was no current Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) certificate available. According to California Health & Safety Code §§ 113947.1 and 113948, all food facilities must have certified personnel to ensure food safety compliance.

    3. Proper Hot and Cold Holding Temperatures (Violation #07) Proper temperature control is crucial for preventing the growth of harmful bacteria in potentially hazardous foods. During the inspection, several items were found to be held at temperatures outside the safe range. Specifically, beef sausage and ham toppings were stored at 51°F and 47°F respectively for over four hours. Moreover, nine full pans of prepared uncooked pizzas with meat and dairy ingredients were measured between 45-55°F and were held for more than four hours. These violations fall under California Health & Safety Code §§ 113982, 113996, 113998, and 114037.

    4. Time as a Public Health Control (Violation #08) When time is used as a public health control, proper documentation and records must be maintained. The inspection revealed that Doughbrick’s Pizza failed to provide TPHC written procedures, records, and date/time logs for cooked pizzas. Furthermore, nine full pans of pre-cooked pizzas were held at 85°F on the holding rack for more than four hours. This violation falls under California Health & Safety Code § 114000.

    In response to the violations, Doughbrick’s Pizza has been directed to take several corrective actions. The establishment must ensure that all food employees are adequately trained in food safety principles and that a valid food safety certification is always available on-site. Additionally, the restaurant must strictly adhere to proper hot and cold holding temperatures, maintaining all potentially hazardous foods at or below 41°F or at or above 135°F.

    To address the TPHC violations, Doughbrick’s Pizza must implement and maintain proper procedures, records, and markings for foods held using time as a control. All potentially hazardous foods must be discarded within four hours if they are not held at approved temperatures.

    The B grade serves as a reminder of the importance of stringent food safety practices in maintaining public health.
