In a statement, president David Quinn said: “Consumer safety and compliance with Kansas health laws are extremely important to our company. While we make every effort to comply with all requirements at all times, our policy is to address immediately any concern that is brought to our attention, whether it is communicated by our staff, customers or inspectors.”

Restaurant officials said the issues were resolved.

• Johnny Brusco’s New York Style Pizza, 10540 S. Ridgeview Road, Olathe, had six violations during a March 6 routine inspection, including a can opener and meat slicer that had significant dried food debris.

“It’s been taken care of. We’ve put new cleaning schedules in place,” said owner Jon Ebert.
