Tanned NJ woman’s salon is fined for overexposure

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A northern New Jersey tanning salon frequented by a woman accused of taking her 6-year-old daughter into a tanning booth has been fined $5,200 for numerous alleged violations, including overexposure.

Inspectors accused City Tropics Tanning 2 in Nutley of 33 violations, mostly related to one patron who allegedly was permitted 24 tanning sessions in March. Inspectors said the patron — whose name was not disclosed — should have been allowed only one session per week.

State Department of Health spokeswoman Donna Leusner said the inspection was based on news coverage of the deeply tanned Patricia Krentcil, who faces a child endangerment charge. But Leusner wouldn’t say whether the patron who was allegedly allowed too many tanning sessions was Krentcil.

The Nutley salon’s owner said he’ll contest the alleged violations found during the May 14 inspection. The salon was also cited for allegedly not using a clean paper towel or cloth to wipe down equipment, for altering a warning statement and tanning authorization form, and for not providing staff training information, among other things.
