Toronto health inspectors have shut down a quick-service health food restaurant in the downtown core after an "immediate health hazard" was located at the restaurant. The restaurant in question is Fit For Life at 25 York Street, located just across from the Scotiabank Arena at York Street and Bremner Boulevard.
According to DineSafe, the city's public health database for food establishments, the Fit For Life location failed to protect against harbouring pests, namely rodents. The restaurant was also booked for a few other infractions, such as failing to keep the food handling room in a sanitary condition. The inspection took place this week, on Monday, December 17th.
There are 13 Fit For Life locations in the GTA and across Canada, 7 in the Toronto area alone. Fit For Life also delivers via Uber Eats.
According to their website, Fit For Life uses fresh ingredients to offer customers a "range of meal choices from sandwiches, to salad bowls to signature boxes made to each customer’s exacting taste." They also serve coffee, smoothies and breakfast foods.
The Fit For Life location at 25 York Street was last examined by health inspectors last month, on November 12th. At that time, the restaurant received a passing grade. This time, the condition of the closure is described as a "crucial" health hazard infraction - allowing the food premise to be maintained in a manner that permits rodents.
Take a look at Fit For Life's full list of infractions at their health inspection this week:
As is the case with most establishments shut down by health inspectors, Fit For Life will likely reopen after they take care of the issue and are given the seal of approval from the city.
