Two Liverpool establishments were given notices to comply by provincial food safety inspectors last month.
Queens Daycare Association (QDA), located at 108 College St., was cited Jan. 7 for having unsealed wood in its food service area and not having a dispenser for paper towels at its hand-washing sink. It was ordered to install a dispenser and “seal wooden surfaces surrounding counter above dishwasher, ensuring surface is smooth, non-absorbent and easily cleanable.”
Reached by social media message, QDA’s Donna Dexter told the Observer both issues have been addressed. “We had recently installed a new dishwasher, and there was bare wood that (had) to be painted,” she said. “We also needed a paper towel holder in the kitchen, which has been installed.”
The Snug Canteen, located at Queens Place Emera Centre, was written-up Jan. 11 for inadequate sanitizing of food contact surfaces. “Provide a food grade sanitizer to sanitize kitchen surfaces,” the inspection report said. “Acceptable sanitizers are 100 ppm unscented chlorine bleach solution or 200 ppm quaternary ammonium compound.” A follow-up inspection Jan. 25 found no deficiencies.
An official with Lane’s Privateer Inn, which operates the Snug Canteen, declined to comment when reached by the Observer.
Another food establishment check-up was conducted Jan. 11 at White Point Beach Resort. The popular getaway spot received two notices to comply in November 2018 but no deficiencies were noted during last month’s inspection.
