The Nova Scotia Food Safety Inspection Report details make for interesting reading every now and then; most places are just fine, some of the usual suspects come up dirty, and every now and then, closures occur from repeat offenses. Great to know these guys are doing what they can to make sure where we eat is not going to kill us!
In 8 years of eating out as a critic, I’ve never knowingly suffered any kind of food poisoning here in Halifax.  I did have a horrible, horrible bout with salmonella back in my hometown, as a result of a bad encounter with a fast food chicken sandwich and I’ll never, ever forget those wretchedly painful weeks in hospital…which is the reason that to this day I can’t eat green Jell-O.
