By-law Enforcement Charges Unlicensed Food Seller


An unlicensed food seller was charged by the City of London By-law Enforcement team over the weekend of December 1, 2018.

In the effort to maintain healthy and safe food sources for all Londoners, Business Licensing by-law requires food sales locations to be regulated and licensed. This assures that the food sold to community members is up to health and safety standards. Given the recent advisories about romaine lettuce and kale being linked to health issues, City staff took prompt action in responding to complaints of possible unregulated food sales at 490 Wonderland Road South.

“In partnership with the Middlesex London Health Unit, the City’s Municipal Law Enforcement Services makes it a high priority to respond to complaints regarding the sale of food from allegedly unregulated premises,” said the city’s Chief Municipal Law Enforcement Officer, Orest Katolyk. “When purchasing food from the back of a truck, think of the people you will be serving the food to and ask yourself, ‘is this a wise decision?’’
