Six P.E.I. food establishments have received warning letters from Environmental Health inspectors.

Four of them were for operating without proper approval certificates. They were Bluefield Natural Products in North River, P.E.I. Rocket Hockey Club canteen at the Charlottetown Civic Centre, Sportsman’s Club in Charlottetown and the University Petro Canada in Charlottetown.

The International Restaurant in Charlottetown received a warning letter for storing foods at improper temperatures, both in their buffet and in the kitchen, as well as not having sanitizer in the mechanical dishwasher.

Officials from Environmental Health say the food in question was thrown out and the restaurant is now following proper practices.

Simmons Sports Centre Canteen received a warning letter for not having a thermometer in the refrigeration unit and for not having sanitizer and testing equipment to test the sanitizer when cleaning utensils.

Environment Health officials say there are few utensils used in the operation, which is mainly serving fried foods.

However, it is important that all equipment used in the preparation of food is clean.

Organizations: Natural Products, Petro Canada

Geographic location: Charlottetown, Bluefield, North River

    For one, I'm glad that we have Environmental Health inspectors and that they take their work seriously. Without prejudice though, let's hope they also take a good hard look at the Farmer's Markets (not just Charlottetown) and some of the more transient food businesses (fry trucks, hot-dog stands, etc). It's just good business to be clean, healthy, and following the guidelines - keep up the good work!
