This Week on DineSafe: Rock Lobster, Amaya Express, Fortune Seafood, Congee Queen, House of Chan

Although there were no closures this week on DineSafe, the number of infractions Toronto restaurants racked up was certainly high. While Rock Lobster on Ossington made this week's roundup, they definitely weren't the biggest offenders here. Fortune Seafood Restaurant broke into the double digits with 11 infractions, including failure to keep toxic substances in separate compartments from food products. Amaya Express in Leslieville, a repeat offender, racked up eight infractions, the most unappealing of which was failure to ensure food was not contaminated/adulterated.
