| || ||
Toronto Public Health --- Toronto Public Health will launch an interactive Web
site providing complete results of restaurant inspections on March 5, 2001.
Consumers will have access to inspection results by restaurant name, address or
Rob Colvin, Manager of the Food Inspection and Disclosure System, said, "We
have had an excellent start-up of the new system and are very pleased with the
implementation to date. We are focused on our quality assurance and ensuring
the system is working smoothly."
Public Health inspectors began posting on-site results of restaurant
inspections on January 8 this year. To date, 1,201 food establishments have
been inspected. Of these, 74 per cent received a green pass notice, 25 per cent
received a yellow conditional pass notice and one per cent were closed.
Until the new site is launched, a daily report of all food premises closed and
re-opened will be available on the current Web site. A Friday summary will also
be posted of the total number of pass, conditional pass, and closed health
inspection notices issued every week. Both the daily closure report and the
weekly summary are available on the Toronto Public Health page of the City Web
site at www.city.toronto.on.ca/health
