DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Yogen Fruz, Lit Espresso Bar, Fu Yao Supermarket, Papaya Hut, Chinese Traditional Buns

The worst culprit on the DineSafe database this week was Papaya Hut, a restaurant and smoothie bar near Yonge and Wellesley. They had no fewer than 10 infractions, including a crucial error in making sure food was not contaminated and significant failures to otherwise manage food safety and clean washroom fixtures. Fu Yao Supermarket at Gerrard and Broadview was also delinquent: the grocery store was on DineSafe last month for the same crucial infraction as this week, namely, failing to ensure food is not contaminated. And here are the other mildly villainous establishments that got nabbed by the health inspector.

An earlier version of this post included Lit Espresso Bar (College), but we have since discovered that the inspection in question in fact resulted in a pass and that the establishment's yellow status was the result of an error on the part of DineSafe.
