Businesses in the Queen Live Fresh Food Market building on Queen Street West and John have been shuttered by DineSafe inspectors.
Inspectors closed down the market following a video uploaded by YouTuber Alex Alexa that surfaced over the weekend showing mice gorging on a buffet of baklava.
Filmed through the window of Meli Baklava and Chocolate Bar at 238 Queen Street West, the incident was cause for health inspectors to take a closer look inside the food court on Monday, July 17.
Now Meli Baklava and Chocolate Bar, along with neighbouring businesses, Gushi Japanese Street Food, My Sandwich, Panino Cowboy, and The Jerk Joint have all been shuttered, having received red cards citing the crucial infraction “Operator fail to prevent a rodent infestation,” and in some cases, various other infractions of varying severity.
