Living in Toronto, you know that there are numerous options when it comes to restaurants and cafes around the city. Whether you're just heading to a hot dog stand on your street corner, grabbing fries from McDonald's, or eating at a five-star restaurant, options are limitless for a delicious meal.

Lucky for all Torontonians, the City of Toronto's food safety team inspects all establishments that serve food, including bakeries, grocery stores, hot dog carts, plus both eat in and take out restaurants.

When the city's food safety auditors come for a visit, they're looking for either minor, significant, and crucial infractions that could put customers at risk when eating at an establishment. While minor infractions can be forgiven if fixed, crucial ones will lead a business to be forced to shut down until those issues are addressed. 

Some businesses can recover from a closure but for others, it can definitely set a reputation that causes them to be shut down for good.

The good news is that in a city with thousands of restaurants and places to pick up food, only 25 spots have had closures this year. Better yet, only three of those places have remained closed. Still, some of the spots that had to close over food safety concerns are pretty popular, so keep your eye out for funky-tasting dishes.
