Mouse Eats Cheese - In the Display of Pastry Shop
A mouse was caught eating cheese in the food display of Toronto coffee shop Bakery On the Go at the Warden Toronto Transit Commission Station.
Borys Machinkowski was waiting for a friend in the bakery when he saw a mouse pop up between two trays in the display case and begin to eat the cheese pastries. He quickly took photographs.
"Between our conversation in the coffee shop, I managed to spot a mouse chowing down on the mini-cheese rolls and pointed it out to my friends and the two other customers in there with us. I snapped a picture of the little offender without hesitation,"
Borys mentioned to an employee that there was a mouse in the display but the employee just continued to work.
He also showed customers the picture and warned that the food may not be sanitary.
"Finally, another man came in and we continued our mission to warn people. We told him about the mouse and he said, 'Huh? This is subway station. You see mice sometime. So what?' in an irritated tone. Then we showed him the picture and his face froze. It turned out he was the manager and he promptly told us to get out, but we didn't until they turned off the lights and closed the store for fear they'd continue selling food to people."
Since a Public Health Inspection:
The shop had to close down for two days due to a failure to protect food from contamination and inadequate temperature controls. Luckily no infestation was found.
