Montreal restaurant and grocery store health violations
Montreal Restaurant and Grocery Store health violations – Although the City of Montreal has seen a 47% increase in cases opened against restaurants and grocery stores in 2016 compared to 2015, it was partly due to a backlog of files with the City’s Food Inspection Department. Montreal Restaurant and Grocery Store health violations is still quite disconcerting.
CBC reported that there were 1999 complaints and 648 reports made last year by customers to the city about unsanitary conditions in food establishments – an increase of 14 percent compared to 2015. In 2016, 645 cases were opened against restaurants, grocery stores and other food vendors for these violations.
Some of the problems City of Montreal inspectors found included ‘infestations of vermin, such as rats, cockroaches and mice, to having no appliances working properly’. According to the CBC report more than 3,400 food samples were taken by City of Montreal inspectors in 2016, with the top four foods coming back with results that did not conform with safety standards being: Charcuteries, Hummus, Meat or Fish tartare and Cooked Chicken.
