Closure order for Sylvan Lake convenience store that sells corn dogs lifted

One food industry owner in Sylvan Lake wants people to know the closure order by AHS has been lifted.

The closure order was brief, says Sangeeta Parmar, co-owner at 24 and 7/Esso on Lakeway Blvd.

The gas station and convenience store has a kitchenette and sells taquitos and corn dogs. The closure order was only applied to the mini-kitchen part of the store.

The verbal order of the closure was posted on June 14, and lifted about a week later, an AHS spokesperson confirmed Sunday.

Even though the closure order was rescinded, it appears on the albertahealthservices.ca website, something the business owner finds frustrating and confusing.

Alberta Health Services “is working to get that updated on the website as soon as possible,” the AHS spokesperson confirmed.

A report on AHS website states the closure was due to food handling practices, unsafe storage of high-risk foods and the lack of liquid soak at a hand washing sink located int he food prep area.

The report also states food contact surfaces and equipment were not maintained in a clean and sanitary manner. High touch areas including the cooler door and ice machine lid were visibly soiled.

The AHS website shows other closures in central Alberta including Bashaw’s The Other Place located on 50 Street. The closure was posted June 6. The inspection report disclosed the food establishment was operating with a valid and subsisting food handling permit from Alberta Health Sevices.
