Chisago City salon fined for lax sanitation practices

A manicurist and her Chisago City salon were fined $2,500 for dozens of sanitation violations after a customer reported she had contracted a fungal infection from pedicures done at the salon, according to an order last month by the Minnesota Board of Cosmetologist Examiners.

My Lai Thi Tran, owner and manager of Chisago Nails Inc., was told to take a sanitation course to avoid having her licenses revoked.

In March 2011, an inspection of the salon identified 19 sanitation violations, "including porous files, buffers, sand paper bits, toe dividers and flip flops being used more than once, implements not properly stored, pedicure spa screens not clean and improper sanitation of pumps and pipes." Thirteen more sanitation violations were found 12 months later.
