TORONTO — On the heels of a tainted Cronut Burger scandal that made more than 200 people sick, two more food booths at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) have been shut down by Toronto Public Health.
Bourbon Street Grill and Bao 360 Shanghai Express, both operated by North York, Ont.-based Innovated Restaurant Group, were cited for food-safety concerns such as failing to prevent gross unsanitary conditions, or failing to ensure food is not contaminated/adulterated.
“We continue to be vigilant with our multi-tiered approach to food safety, which includes working closely with Toronto Public Health and our own food-safety consultants,” stated David Bednar, GM of the CNE, in a press release yesterday. “Our approach to this issue, as with other general issues of safety, leaves no room for compromise.”
Both eateries will remain closed until the expo ends Sept. 2.
