Food Premises Inspection Reports by the province confirm licensed food premises comply with the minimum standards of the Public Health Act and Food Premises Regulations. Food-service operations subject to annual inspection include all sit-in and take-out restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores and markets, as well as food-service providers at special events.
A history of inspection results can be found by searching online here.
Some establishments have a history of problems found during inspections. However, they continue to operate. The issues/question is: “Is PEI too lenient when it comes to letting licensed food premises continue to operate when they have a history of failing inspections?”.
One solution suggested was that the province require a history of past inspections be posted at the entrance(s) to licensed food premises so that potential patrons can make informed decisions.
