SPRINGTOWN, Texas - The Mr. Jim’s Pizza in Springtown has been shut down by the health inspector after it was found that some of their employees put laxatives on at least one pizza.
The Springtown Police Department was contacted Friday night about food tampering at the restaurant, which is located in the 400 block of East State Hwy.
