Firefly on Paradise Passes Most Recent Inspection

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Months after being shut down following a salmonella outbreak, Firefly on Paradise appears to have passed its most recent health inspection with few issues.

A Southern Nevada Health District inspection dated July 18 shows Firefly on Paradise, 3824 Paradise Road, receiving an ‘A' grade with three demerits. The demerits were related to "food protected from potential contamination during storage and preparation."

The location at 3824 Paradise was opened May 24 after the restaurant's previous spot at 3900 Paradise was closed by health inspectors. Records indicate the new location's prep kitchen passed a June 3 inspection with an ‘A' grade as well.

The restaurant received 44 demerits during an April 26 inspection, forcing the location to close. A subsequent investigation by the health district showed as many as 300 people reporting symptoms that could be related to salmonella. Cooked chorizo tested positive for salmonella during the investigation, the only such item to do so.

In a statement, Firefly owner John Simmons said the restaurant is "proud to learn of the excellent results of the recent unannounced health district review. We believe the inspection independently confirms the safety standards to which we adhere."
