DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Tim Hortons, The Upper Crust, Ginger (Bloor), TenTen, Piazzetta Trattoria

The run of red card-free weeks continues for Toronto restaurants. In our latest instalment of the DineSafe diaries, the most significant errors are inadequate pest control at a Tim Hortons and some hazardous food handling practices at Sushi Garden. Throw in several charges of improper food handling at new restaurant TenTen, and at least you know that the inspectors weren't sleeping on the job. Here's a selection of this week's slip-ups.
