Which Cornwall Ontario Area Eateries Were Yellow Carded by the EOHU in 2015

Which Cornwall Ontario Area Eateries Were Yellow Carded by the EOHU in 2015

After doing my opinion piece on this utterly hurtful new restaurant sign law directed by the EOHU after getting rubber stamped by council we decided to do our yearly review and it laid out a scary future for the hospitality industry in our region.

While most people get the Green, Yellow, & Red system what they most likely not realize is how this is graded and how one location can get a yellow for one or two minor offenses and another have four or more and still be green?

There isn’t a single eatery I wouldn’t dine at based on this flawed system that will only hurt local business.

Here are some screen caps from the EOHU website showing their exact reports during 2015.  You decide if it’s fair or accurate.

The worst offender for 2015 was the Family Corner restaurant with not only multiple yellow cards, but each having more than the average offenses.

FC may 28 a

FC may 28 b

In May they were cited for 11 out of 43 food safety standards!

FC June 4 a

FC June 4 b

They only had 7 citations in June.


Panda Restaurant was given a yellow with only a single citation.   Both are yellow, but certainly both are not equal.

summer heights green

Summer Heights Golf Club, where the cliquey political people love to golf had 5 citations yet still were green.

Does that make any sense to you?

Here, in no special order are eateries that were yellow carded during 2015.   Should any of them have to wear a badge on their doors like a fiscal Jewish star during WWII?

The same type of system is used in Toronto. No system that deals with food safety, etc. is perfect or will ever be perfect.


To me there is no story. So, they are implementing a sign system for restaurants, etc. If you’re saying that certain establishment s get passes just because who they are yes I understand that. But this happens in all aspects of life, not just the restaurant / food industry. As the saying goes whoever has the gold makes the rules. Is it right? Of course not. But changing the golden rule is not easy and rarely succeeds.


I agree with you. However, as I`ve said many times no system is perfect. It also may be the type of yellow infractions issued. This system definitely needs to be fine tuned. Perhaps if you get `X` number of yellow infractions a fine system or different sign has to be displayed. (Hit them on their bottom line, they`ll fix the problem real quick.) Or even better, if you`re yellow carded you must display the health unit report detailing what was found and how \ when corrective action will or has taken place. That way consumers can decide if they want… Read more »


Agreed. But how do you `proof` system like this? This is not like a software program where you can test it before hand.


Jamie you spoke about the Cornwall Housing Authority about their A/C policy and I see what happens in our full market value housing in buildings and townhouses, etc. and we had one of those window A/C’s while in Cornwall in full market rent and the super went and destroyed it and it could have fallen from the window even with the brackets because that numb skull did everything wrong and it was a brand new machine. My husband bought a portable A/C last summer from our super and he puts it where the balcony door is located and I can’t… Read more »


Just a few brief comments.

What the EOHU did looks very similar to what Toronto'”Dine Safe” is like.

A public session would have been a good idea, with restaurants and other food establishments. But if it had been like any of the other public consultations would anyone attended?

Now, not hiring consultants?? That’s not the Cornwall council way of doing things. (If you can’t tell my tongue is firmly planted in my cheek.)

Cronyism and corruption evaluated? How about eliminating it once and for all??

Red tape must be reduced everywhere.


Has there been an uptick in food poisoning incidents at Cornwall restaurants in recent years?


Portable A/C units are not very efficient compared to window mounted units. We’ve had two portable A/C units due to the locations of the venting windows. They cool a very small area and being closer to the floor do not do a very good job. Thankfully our house has central air. But when we went house hunting one of my “must-haves” was central air. Most municipalities do not allow charcoal or gas (propane or natural) BBQ’s on balconies. Allowing charcoal or gas (propane or natural) BBQ’s on balconies is just asking for trouble, as some people do not pay attention… Read more »


Jamie,the way this resto review is presented it is difficult to know who gets what grade after inspection…..can you simply make a list of those with good passing grades,then those with yellow tickets ,Lastly ,those with red tickets that should be avoided in order for the corrections to be made. This way perhaps serious & contagious illnesses could be avoided . Thanks sue thompson Ps is there any value in this system for the public to understand the necessity of this grading.? When will we know that these places are safe to eat It will contribute to avoidance of some… Read more »


People keep asking what restaurants have the yellow card. I can tell people that some of the 5 star restaurants and hotels, etc. have their problems with cleanliness, etc. Restaurants here in Ottawa are mostly inspected but even the best have cockroaches as well as bed bugs and rats. I even saw it again today where a hotel in Manhattan (NYC) where people pay $400./night and up have bed bugs. Howard Stern the radio host had an infestation of bed bugs in his limosine. The only way that you know what you are eating and how it is made and… Read more »
