The New Indian Sweets & Restaurant was recently closed after an executive officer of Alberta Health Services (AHS) inspected the establishment.

The inspector found over 10 violations at New Indian Sweets & Restaurant, located at 3371 – 28A Avenue NW in Edmonton, that could be harmful or dangerous to public health.

“There is evidence of a mouse infestation,” reads the written order from the AHS.

“Mouse droppings are present on food, food preparation surfaces, food packaging, counters, and under and on shelving units where food and food packaging is being stored.”

This closure order from the AHS was issued on December 9, including a verbal order on December 6.

There were many other instances of unhealthy conditions found by the inspector, including a “significant amount mouse droppings in the dry storage areas, bar area, behind equipment, underneath grills, ovens, and coolers.”

“There are multiple holes located in the walls in the facility, including holes that were made by mice in the bar area, bathrooms, dry storage areas and hallway,” read the AHS order.

“There is food visibly contaminated with rodent droppings and urine present in the kitchen and dry storage areas.”

Before the restaurant could reopen, the owner had to undertake and diligently pursue the completion of several work-related changes, including working with “a licensed Pest Control Company and building owner to implement and maintain an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program within the facility to eliminate the pest infestation.”

There were also several repairs, storage, and deep cleaning duties to perform before reopening.

Dished reached out to the restaurant for comment and the restaurant is now “open with the approval of health care instructor.”
