Suspect samosas: food inspector shuts down student union sale at McGill

October 31, 2019

City food inspectors have shut down a samosa sale by the Students’ Society of at McGill University (SSMU) for not complying with serving regulations. While conducting a routine inspection of the campus cafeteria, inspectors noticed that samosas were being sold by the society at room temperature and served by hand. Inspectors noted that because samosas include cooked vegetables, they must be sold hot or cold, served sterilely, and customers must be offered utensils to eat with. In response, the student union is creating guidelines regarding the selling and preparation of food. SSMU VP External Adam Gwiazda-Amsel says that the samosa sales will resume next month and will comply with the new guidelines. CBC (QC)
