Northern Health has posted an update saying So Good restaurant has gone from a high hazard rating during a complaint driven inspection on Sept. 29 to moderate on Oct. 11 to low on Oct. 12.

So Good got a high hazard rating when the inspector observed two critical violations along with two lesser violations when food was discovered not to be stored at the proper temperature and equipment/utensils/food contacted surfaces not properly washed and sanitized.

Other violations deemed less critical included a dead mouse found in a trap and a large accumulation of mouse droppings observed around dry storage food shelving.

The restaurant was ordered to replace the thermometer inside a cooler with a working thermometer and remove any mouse droppings and mice, and monitor the area for further activity on a daily basis and ensure that back doorways are kept closed whenever possible to limit pest entry.

The restaurant was also ordered to perform a thorough cleaning of the premises, including the indicated areas.

During the inspection on Oct. 11, the same two critical violations were noted and the same two non-critical violations were also noted from the inspection on Sept. 30 where the restaurant was given a high hazard rating. A moderate hazard rating was issued, however, as it was reported the 'food not protected from contamination' violation was corrected during inspection.

On Oct. 12, it was reported that a "remote inspection of the premises was conducted by the operator providing photos of the corrective actions requested by the Environmental Health Officer, an on-site inspection was not conducted."

In its recent history, So Good has rated high and moderate since May 2023, only achieving a low rating twice, once on July 5 and once on Oct. 12, during a total of seven inspections.
