Wei Du, 49, was present in Kentville provincial court June 6. As his first language is Mandarin, an interpreter was required.

Du pleaded guilty to failing to ensure that all food in the Fu-Wah Restaurant was obtained from a source that is subject to inspection. He was fined a total of $300.

The Crown attorney withdrew a charge of obstructing an inspector in the performance of duties by providing false information.

Du committed the offence in Aylesford March 17. According to online Nova Scotia Food Establishment Inspection Reports, the restaurant was inspected by Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture Food Protection and Enforcement Division March 17. A closure order was issued because “conditions exist that are potentially hazardous to human health.”

The same date, the restaurant was issued a notice to comply with a deficiency involving failure to provide sanitary conditions of food contact surfaces. It was noted that the cleaning and sanitizing of all food contact surfaces was required.

The restaurant was issued a notice to comply for failure to provide sanitary conditions of non-food contact surfaces. The remedy noted was to clean and disinfect all non-food contact surfaces. A notice to comply was also issued for the inappropriate use of carpets. The remedy noted was to remove carpeting from a basement storage area.

Following a March 19 inspection, a notice to comply was again issued for the inappropriate use of carpets.

The restaurant was issued notices to comply with several other deficiencies between July and November 2015, including three instances of failing to protect food from contamination, two instances of inappropriate management systems being in place or practiced and two other instances of inappropriate use of carpets.
