The owner of the salon where Tanning Mom allegedly scorched her 5-year-old's skin plans to fight $5,200 in fines levied by the local health department -- TMZ has learned.

The Department of Health and Senior Services in Nutley, NJ announced today ... it's fining City Tropics Tanning for violations including consumer overexposure and misusing sunlamp equipment.

According to the health department, inspectors discovered the salon's customers were exceeding the legal weekly limit for UV exposure.

But City Tropics owner Anthony Ruccatano tells TMZ he's refusing to pay -- and wants to take the health department to court over the fine.

Ruccatano insists his business never broke the law and wants a judge to dismiss the fine entirely.

Calls to the health department weren't returned.

What part of the "orange glow" does the tanning salon owner not see? This woman is beyond over-tanned and I bet she is still going back to the tanning booth. She will be the exact person to sue the tanning salon when she wakes up and finds out she has skin cancer!

They did anything to bypass the system. I know as someone who was on the other side of the counter as a non-consumer and consumer. You were actually able to use the laydown bed for 10 minutes and the stand up bed that had a maximum of 12 minutes for 10 minutes, totalling 20 minutes, which is the approved time for the lay downs. Of course thats exceeding the UV exposure.

Shouldn't they also be fined for allowng something as unsanitary and filthy as this POS to lie in one of their tanning beds? This nutjob's mere presence is a violation of the health code.

"Legal weekly UV limit" brought to you by your liberal police state. Same state that will fine you for texting while walking on public property. I hope they win.

Too much of anything is never a good thing. But, IMHO the owner has a good case since the State does not REGULATE Tanning Salons.

At this time, neither the Department of Environmental Protection nor the Department of Health regulate tanning salons. Any questions regarding these should be referred to local health department officials.
