Toronto Public Health Releases Results of Week Six of Restaurant Blitz|
| || ||
Toronto Public Health today released results of week six of the restaurant
blitz, Monday March 27 to Friday April 1, 2000.
Of the 296 food premises inspected during week six, 165 were in the downtown
blitz area and 131 were in the rest of the city. After initial inspection, 64
percent of restaurants in the blitz area and 60 percent of restaurants in the
rest of the city were not in full compliance. However, 97 percent of the food
premises were in full compliance upon second inspection. One restaurant was
closed and two restaurants have charges pending. These food premises, along
with a full listing of food premises closed and re-opened, as well as those
with charges pending, are on the Toronto Public Health home page on the
City of Toronto website at http://www.city.toronto.on.ca/health/blitz.htm.
Since the blitz began a total of 24 food premises have been closed and 45 food
premises have been charged or have charges pending.
Toronto Public Health suspended the restaurant blitz during the city's labour
disruption. Therefore the week of April 3-7, 2000 will not be considered part
of the blitz campaign. Week seven of the blitz includes Monday April 10 to
Friday April 14, 2000 and will be reported on next week.
As part of the public consultation process, Toronto Public Health encourages
individuals and organizations to email their comments on access to inspection
information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments can also be faxed to:
