Ontario grocer fined for mice in warehouse

The Toronto Star is reporting that the owners of Ontario’s second largest supermarket chain, A&P, have been fined $15,625 after pleading guilty in provincial offences court to a charge of failing to prevent a rodent infestation.

A City of Toronto health inspector laid the charge after finding the A&P warehouse in the west end was overrun with mice last fall.

The warehouse, which serves 250 Dominion, A&P and Food Basics stores in Ontario, was closed for two days in September while the problem was cleared up.
