Toronto restaurant nailed with 19 infractions from health inspectors

A Korean restaurant in Toronto was recently flagged by health inspectors after they detected a long list of infractions.

Seoul House, located at 3220 Dufferin Street, received a conditional pass notice on April 20 after health inspectors found a staggering 19 infractions, two of which were crucial, three significant, and five minor. 

The restaurant offers a wide array of traditional Korean dishes and sushi, including jjajangmyeon, kimchi fried rice, hotpot, and soup. 

The three crucial infractions included storing "ice in unsanitary manner," and failing to "ensure food handler in food premise washes hands as necessary to prevent contamination of food." 

The 11 infractions included "use food equipment not of readily cleanable form," and "use dirty cloth for cleaning food contact surface." 

Some of the minor infractions were listed as "food premise not maintained with clean walls in food-handling room," and failing to "ensure equipment surface sanitized as necessary." 

A full list of the infractions is available on the DineSafe website
