Public Health Warns of Fake Restaurant Inspectors
Toronto Public Health are warning of fake restaurant inspectors making the rounds in the city.
They claim someone has been contacting restaurant operators, either in person or on the phone, claiming to be health inspectors and insisting the owners buy a first aid kit for $300.
Toronto Public Health says if that happens to you, call Police.
Jim Chan, food safety manager with Toronto Public Health says "Legitimate public health inspectors do not call ahead to schedule inspections. In most cases, inspections are unannounced. As well, TPH inspectors do not sell first-aid kits to food operators."
