Toronto Public Health issued four conditional passes to restaurants, cafés, bakeries, bars and grocery stores on Dec. 1.

B.k. Natural Foods at 114 Eglinton Square received a conditional pass with three major infractions:

  • Fail to maintain records of pest control measures taken
  • Fail to provide thermometer in refrigeration equipment
  • Refrigerate potentially hazardous foods at internal temperature above 4 C

Daldonghae at 658 Bloor Street West received a conditional pass with four major infractions:

  • Fail to ensure equipment surface cleaned as necessary
  • Fail to protect food from contamination or adulteration
  • Handwashing stations not conveniently accessible by food handlers
  • Store ice in unsanitary manner

Pizza Pizza at 1393 Lawrence Avenue West received a conditional pass with one major infraction:

  • Use food equipment not in good repair

Watt’s at 1 Eglinton Square received a conditional pass with three major infractions:

  • Fail to maintain handwashing stations (liquid soap and paper towels)
  • Fail to provide thermometer in refrigeration equipment
  • Mechanical equipment not maintained to provide sufficient chemical solution rinse

A conditional pass is issued when at least one infraction presents a significant health risk, and a closure is ordered when at least one infraction presents an immediate health hazard. Both outcomes trigger an additional inspection within 48 hours. Failure to comply with Toronto’s DineSafe program can result in fines, court summons and other enforcement action.
