As many Calgarians are already aware there have been some surprising reports in the past year about restaurants in our city. The most recent being that the popular chain of breakfast spots Nellie’s has had a major issue with health violations that spans more than a decade.
The owner of this chain was finally taken to court and fined more than $60,000 for the long list of health code violations that include mouse droppings found in food by inspectors.
While most restaurants will at some point have a less than perfect inspection this sort of complete disregard for public health is to say the least highly inappropriate. I hope that the patrons of Nellie’s show their disapproval for these actions.
If you are wondering how you can protect yourself, it’s simple. I’ll offer you what may be the best tool for the job. The Alberta Health Service maintains a database of inspection reports and complaints for all restaurants that is easily accessible via the net.
Simply head to THIS SITE and you can look over any reports that may have been filed for the places you visit or would like to visit.
I strongly suggest you look at all the reports for your favourite locations and continue to use this tool when planning a night out.
