Provincial inspectors have closed down restaurants, bakeries and butchers 32 times over the past year, according to the province’s health inspection report.
The report, available online, outlines food establishment and swimming pool testing that found violations worthy of a shut down.
Most of the food violations involved insanitary conditions, including everything from dishwashing equipment not operating to standards or even rodents.
The majority of ordered closures were one to five days.
Pool violations were found at hotels, resorts, apartment buildings, and at the hot tub of a physiotherapy clinic.
