Richmond deli closes due to pest infestation, unsanitary conditions

VCH closed down Buns Master Deli after a health inspection
Buns Master Deli has been closed since March 2023.

A local bakery and deli has remained closed for almost a month after a health inspection by Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH).

According to VCH, Buns Master Bakery & Delicatessen on No. 6 Road near Westminster Highway was closed in March due to improper construction, unsanitary conditions and pest infestation.

An inspection report from March 23, 2023 lists a series of issues with sanitation such as the fact that food was not protected from contamination, the dishwasher or glasswasher was not sufficient for removing contamination and hand washing stations were not properly supplied and maintained.

Employees also did not take a certified food safety training course.

It is unclear when the deli will reopen.
