The post-cockroach Globefish

24 Jul

A while back, I posted how one of the three Globefish locations in Calgary had been shut down due to cockroaches.  The Calgary Herald article link no longer works, so here is the Alberta Health Services Notice of Closure:

Well, I guess the day after Globefish was closed due to health concerns, they opened their doors again with positive and supportive comments from the Alberta Health Services’ Safe Food Program supervisor according to the Calgary Sun.

Calgary Sun article:–izakaya-after-cockroaches-were-found

Reading articles and comments online there seemed to be a wide division of opinions – some people commented that unwanted bugs were commonplace in restaurants and eateries in other countries, and really weren’t a huge deal, while others were horrified and didn’t understand how a high-end (high cost, high quality) venue like Globefish could have had so many violations.  (In addition to a “large amount of cockroaches” found in glue traps, and “live cockroaches were found in the facility”, the restaurant was also cited for not having recent pest control records on site, leaving cleaning cloths sitting out, and not cleaning hard-to-reach areas.)

I know that I haven’t been back to Globefish (there are so many places for sushi to choose from!) since the news report about their closure came out – have you?
