Living in Toronto, eating out is always a temptation with restaurants and take out on every corner of the city. While eating out is often a stressfree choice, not everything always goes according to plan. As per usual, the city's health inspectors have been monitoring the streets of Toronto and multiple well-known restaurants have received health infractions recently. 

The City of Toronto is constantly updating its 'Dine Safe' page to inform Torontonians how well a restaurant is complying with the Health Code. The city posts all of their inspection results here and mentions when certain restaurants violate the Health Code. 

Restaurants that have been degraded to a 'conditional pass' opposed to a green pass means that a health violation has been discovered within their restaurant. Some violations are much worse than others and can be anything from an unclean cooking surface to a pest infestation. 

However, it is important to remember that restaurants who have been charged with infractions during their inspections aren't complete write-offs. Every restaurant who receives a conditional pass has a second chance to fix their violation and gain a green pass at a second inspection during a later date. 

Here are some of the restaurants that have been charged with health code violations since April.
